Revolution of Health

For this assignment you will create an additional chapter for the textbook “Introduction to Determinants of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis Peoples’ Health” that celebrates an example of Indigenous resilience and health leadership. For this chapter you must choose an Indigenous person, organization, or grassroots group who has advanced Indigenous health and wellbeing in some way. Please select a person, organization or group who has made recent contributions.

This is the organization you will use:
Vancouver Aboriginal Health Society’s – Urban Indigenous Safety Collective program specifically

Your chapter must include the following components:

  1. Overview of the person/organization/group’s work (approximately 1 pages, minimum 2 references). Provide a summary of who they are including details about where they are from (territory, cultural background etc.), and the work that they do / what specific issues they focus on.
    *you should be referencing the organizations website in section 1:
    Please also reference this for the territory acknowledgement of where this organization is located. The address of the organization is 449 East Hastings St.
    Vancouver, BC V6A 1P5. You can use this site to figure out what territory this organization is on:
  2. Relevant historical and socio-political context (approximately 3 pages). Provide background information on their work. How has settler colonialism influenced the issues they address in their work? What policies/systemic issues are relevant here? If their work is focused on health within a specific nation or Indigenous group (First Nations, Métis or Inuit) please ensure that the context you describe is relevant to that group/nation. If their work is focused on a particular territory, please include some contextual information about that place (and include a reference for this).
    *you should be incorporating 5 references below in section 2 in a meaningful way.
