November 2022

In this video, Poet Norma Dunning explains the role of poetry and other art in health advocacy. She discusses her poem, “to sit down for a long time,” before offering a thoughtful reading of this creative work.

The NCCIH has developed a series of eight videos featuring discussions with some of the editors and authors of Introduction to Determinants of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples’ Health in Canada. The videos offer real-world insight and perspective that illuminate key concepts in the book, but they can also be used as stand-alone learning tools for anyone teaching or promoting Indigenous health and well-being.
