"I listened to my mum, my dad, my gramma, that is why I am still
here. That is how you stay alive." -Mida Donnessey Wisdom Engaged
demonstrates how traditional knowledge, Indigenous approaches to
healing, and the insights of Western bio-medicine can complement
each other when all voices are heard in a collaborative effort to
address changes to Indigenous communities' well-being. In this
collection, voices of Elders, healers, physicians, and scholars are
gathered in an attempt to find viable ways to move forward while
facing new challenges. Bringing these varied voices together
provides a critical conversation about the nature of medicine; a
demonstration of ethical commitment; and an example of building
successful community relationships. Contributors: Alestine Andre,
