Abstract
"Continuing the theme of social determinants of health, this book is an historical examination of Canadian legal regimes and the negative impact they have had on the health of Aboriginal peoples. Everything from the early ban on traditional practices to the constitutional division of powers is examined (including who is responsible for off-reserve Indians under the Constitution). The author argues there is a clear connection between the health of individuals and the legal regime under which they live, and that our legal regime is one of the determinants of health. She contrasts the state of Aboriginal health in pre-contact days with their health today. The book provides comprehensive reviews of both health statistical data, historical practices aimed at Aboriginal peoples, and an analysis of legal principles that have developed in Canadian law as it applies to Aboriginal peoples. It outlines how commitments made by treaty and Supreme Court of Canada rulings on Aboriginal rights, the duty to consult, and the special constitutional status of Aboriginal peoples can be used to advance the health of Aboriginal peoples. The book concludes with a practical framework for the reconciliation of Aboriginal health and healing practices within Canadian society."--Pub. desc.

Abstract
"As a leading researcher in the field of biology, Robin Wall Kimmerer understands the delicate state of our world. But as an active member of the Potawatomi nation, she senses and relates to the world through a way of knowing far older than any science. In Braiding Sweetgrass, she intertwines these two modes of awareness--the analytic and the emotional, the scientific and the cultural--to ultimately reveal a path toward healing the rift that grows between people and nature. The woven essays that construct this book bring people back into conversation with all that is green and growing; a universe that never stopped speaking to us, even when we forgot how to listen"-- Provided by publisher.

Abstract
"A training film for B.C.'s municipal police recruits on the relationship between police and Aboriginal peoples. The intention of the film is to provide a first step training for recruits on: the history of Aboriginal peoples (First Nations, Inuit and Me´tis peoples), particularly in B.C. ; the role of police in the enforcement of laws of Canada that today are deemed to have been damaging to the Aboriginal peoples [...] ; the experience of the Aboriginal peoples through that lens, showing what police will see on the streets and in the communities today, both the powerfully positive and the profoundly negative ; the consequence of generations of children being taken from families and entered into the residential schools of this country [...] ; and finally, connecting issues of drug and alcohol abuse, family disintegration and loss of identity to the sexual, psychological, physical and other abuses common in the schools."

Abstract
"Different voices from diverse cultural backgrounds share life stories about the paths travelled while navigating their experience of mental illness. Their messages are meant to serve as a catalyst for ongoing discussion to deepen our understanding of needs and experience of people who experience mental illness and, in particular, Aboriginal people and their families. They offer suggestions for a more holistic system that includes an approach of respect, not blame, and an understanding of their need for cultural reconciliation. A health care provider comments that respect for the patient's personal experience is an essential first step along the path to healing. This film is an initiative of the Cultural Society working group of the First Nation, Me´tis and Inuit Advisory Committee of the Mental Health Commission in collaboration with the Mood Disorders Association of Canada and the Native Mental Health Association."
