mino-ayā-win “we’re feeling good”
The past two years of the pandemic have been challenging in many ways for humanity. We have had to confine, limit our movement, and become aware of contagion. For Indigenous peoples, disparities became exasperated. The mental, emotional, spiritual, and intellectual health and relationships of our students, staff and community were tested. Statistics have confirmed these realities.
In response to the need to support the health and wellness of our Indigenous communities, the First Nations University of Canada will host mino-ayā-win “we’re feeling good”, an Indigenous Health & Wellness Virtual Forum on March 24th and March 25th, both are half-day sessions.
The focus topics are centred around the Medicine Wheel teachings and the connectedness between wellness, mental health, lateral violence to lateral kindness, and community health. The planning committee has invited a number of distinguished guests to present at the 2-day event.
