Confronting Systemic Racism in Healthcare by Empowering First Nations Governance
This episode of the Warrior Life Podcast, Today’s podcast is the first for 2022 – Happy New Year everyone! This podcast is from a keynote I did for Atlantic Policy Congress of First Nations Chiefs (APC) for the Atlantic Indigenous Health Conference held in March 2021.
I have dedicated this episode to my cousin Candy Palmater who passed away unexpectedly on Christmas morning. She left a powerful legacy of love and compassion for our peoples. She wanted us to remember to love ourselves as we are and be the soft place to fall for our relatives so deeply traumatized by genocide.
At the time, I didn’t know that my cousin Candy would be chairing the conference, so it was such a nice surprise I saw her face and heard her voice. It was hard not to get emotional when she introduced me, but it was the end of the keynote that I will always remember.
