Introduction to Determinants of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples’ Health in Canada

Introduction to Determinants of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples’ Health in Canada offers an introductory overview of the determinants of health for Indigenous Peoples in Canada and an understanding of coloniality in health care and how it determines First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples’ health and well-being. This book is grounded in wisdom from First Nations, Inuit, and Métis leaders, knowledge holders, artists, clinicians, health researchers, students and youth. Using a comprehensive and holistic approach, it provides insights and applied knowledge about combating coloniality and transforming health care systems in Canada.

Compiled by experienced editors associated with the National Collaborating Centre for Indigenous Health (NCCIH), Introduction to Determinants of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples’ Health in Canada draws together the work and writings of primarily Indigenous authors, including academics, community leaders, and health care practitioners. This accessible and timely introduction is a vital undergraduate resource, and invaluable for introducing key concepts and ideas to students new to the field.
