Indigenous Health and Wellness - INST 1376

This course explores holistic health-promotion strategies of resilience that interweave Indigenous history, culture, and spirit. There are profound gaps in health for Indigenous peoples for almost every indicator in mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual health, and these are exacerbated by social issues such as systemic racism, poverty, and intergenerational trauma. The reconciliation of present-day health disparities involves rethinking and implementing changes in current health fields and practices. Students will engage with Indigenous ways of teaching, learning, and knowing, including narrative as a form of therapeutic practice.

Note: Restricted to Arts and Sciences, Indigenous Studies, Open Studies, Therapeutic Recreation
