Indigenous Health Research Projects

Program Summary

Our mandate is to develop capacity for community-based Indigenous health research in Saskatchewan and to create networks of Indigenous health researchers regionally, nationally, and internationally. We strive to create an ethical environment in research that supports Indigenous community-based definitions and solutions to health while acknowledging Indigenous models/methods of health and informing government policies and practices.

Current Projects:

  • Iyiniw-Oskâtisak Pamihisowak: Using Indigenous Knowledge for a Healthier Aboriginal Youth
  • Kitinikêwin Misiwanacihisowin: Researching Arts-Based Wellness Promotion for Suicide Prevention Among Aboriginal Youth
