Gathering for miyomahcihowin and mii yoo naa kaa twayh ta mihk

The University of Saskatchewan’s health science colleges and schools invite health professionals, Indigenous health service organizations, students, community partners and key Indigenous stakeholders to a three-day Gathering in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Building on the success of the 2018 event, the committee will once again engage Indigenous community members to identify health priorities. The Gathering will showcase approaches to developing reciprocal, respectful partnerships between communities and researchers. Internationally recognized local Indigenous health researchers will be invited to speak and guide sessions organized around identified health priorities.

2020 Health Priorities

  1. Mental wellness
  2. Recovery from addictions
  3. Living well with chronic conditions
  4. Promising approaches to wellness
  5. Healthy environments (food security, clean water, safe housing and access to healthcare)

The name of the event has evolved to include Michif language as well as Cree in order to more accurately reflect the health priorities and themes that will be shared and explored:

  • miyomahcihowin (Cree) — physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellness
  • mii yoo naa kaa twayh ta mihk (Michif) — thinking with a clear mind

 

Registration for the Gathering will open January 6, 2020 via EventBrite.
