What are the intersections between biology and holistic health in an Indigenous framework?

Understanding Indigenous cultures, perspectives, and diverse experiences and their interactions with holistic health and land-based healing modalities are essential to respectful interaction with Indigenous persons, communities, and their research agendas.

This course will examine relationships between western biomedical science and Indigenous holistic health in inquiry-based, experiential learning activities and assignments.

  • All students in HMB226H will be ICM (International/ Indigenous Course Module) participants in a land-based learning experience from May 24-May 26 trip to Six Nations of the Grand River, an Ontario Indigenous community
  • Visiting the community and engaging with local Elders and knowledge keepers, students will be introduced to experiential learning in a Haudenosaunee community-directed research process and culturally based teachings about plant medicines, the Woodland Cultural Centre (a former residential school), and community research priorities
