As Indigenous History Month approaches, we encourage everyone to reflect on the importance of this month and the progress made in recognizing and respecting Indigenous peoples of Turtle Island.
As we reflect, it is important to recognize the history and diversity of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples in Canada and to acknowledge the need for continued learning and reconciliation.
This year marks significant milestones for Indigenous peoples.
It is imperative that Indigenous patients in the health-care system receive culturally safe care. The CRNA is committed to ensuring that Indigenous peoples are treated with respect in our health system and provided with culturally safe care. To support this commitment, we have invested significant time and effort in updating our Indigenous learning course Stronger Together: Learning Through Indigenous Perspectives. The updated course will be available to all registrants on June 21, 2023, and includes new interviews, reflections and perspectives from Elders on Treaty 8 Territory. The information from this course is a valuable resource to inform nursing practice and the delivery of culturally safe care.
As we recognize Indigenous History Month, let us commit to continuing to learn about and honour the history, heritage and diversity of Indigenous peoples, and to working towards a future of reconciliation and healing.
