Video: Waskítaskamik (On the Face of the Earth) – The Power of Storytelling

October 2022

In this video, Madeleine Dion Stout and her granddaughter, Miyawata Dion Stout describe the bonds that are forged between generations when stories about creation, history, lands, and languages are shared. They reflect on how knowing and learning one’s identity stories can promote Indigenous Peoples’ well-being. This video introduces Chapter 7 of Introduction to Determinants of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples’ Health in Canada.

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 (2022). 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.
