About the webinar:

Despite the documented continued use of traditional healing methods, modalities and its associated practitioners by Indigenous groups across North America, widespread knowledge is elusive amongst most Western trained health professionals and systems. This despite that the over 6 million Indigenous peoples who currently reside in Canada and the United States (US) are most often served by Western systems of medicine. A systematic search of multiple databases was performed, with consequent title and abstract review of articles published on traditional Indigenous medicine in the North American context utilizing an established scoping review framework. The research was is an attempt to catalogue the wide array of published research in the peer-reviewed and grey literature on traditional Indigenous medicine in North America in order to provide an accessible databases for medical practitioners, scholars and communities to better inform practice, policymaking, and research in Indigenous communities specifically through an Indigenous public health lens. The efforts and results of this research will be presented.
