Traditional Medicine Revitalization

Indigenous healing traditions are on the brink of extinction in the NWT and Nunavut. The last remaining traditional healers and helpers want to pass on their knowledge in a culturally safe and self-determined manner before they are gone to ensure sustainability of their culture when it comes to health and wellness. The AIWF is facilitating this education space to engender a new generation of skilled traditional-medicine holders and counsellors who are able to serve their people/regions and work collaboratively with the greater health system.
