This episode will be hosted on Thursday, November 12, 2020 at 10:30 am Pacific / 12:30 pm Central / 2:30 pm Atlantic (for 90 Minutes).

This dialogue will explore how collaboration between Indigenous knowledge and science can improve public health outcomes throughout Canada in the face of COVID-19. Preliminary reports from Indigenous Services Canada suggest that First Nations communities are experiencing 1/4 of the infection rate and 1/5 of the mortality rate from COVID-19 experienced by the general Canadian population. The session will explore how Indigenous Peoples have leveraged their millennia of experience enduring past pandemics to protect their people and foster their resilience in the face of new public health challenges.
