Reconciliation in Health Services

Tuesday, June 13, 2023 10:30to12:00

The children found at residential sites have awakened the consciousness of Canada which we hope will inspire an interest in Indigenous creation stories, traditional ways of healing, and allyship. In this presentation, Myeengun Henry will share indigenous knowledge through storytelling and discuss natural medicines provided by our beautiful Mother Earth. This event will be held in English.

About Myeengun Henry

Myeengun feels very fortunate to have studied Anishinaabe culture with various elders. Today he conducts ceremonies and is a practitioner of both Aboriginal traditional medicine and the Anishinaabe language. He has gained extensive experience at Anishinaabe Health Toronto as its program manager and Oshkibiiwis (healer’s helper) as well as working on the street patrol program’s homelessness initiative. He conducts a youth group in Kitchener, Ontario, building healthy relationships with youth in various Indigenous communities, assisting them with issues of identity and providing “stages of life” teachings to help them excel and achieve success.
