Mobilizing Indigenous Knowledge for Culturally Safe Research, Education and Practice

The Aboriginal Children’s Hurt and Healing (ACHH) Initiative is working with communities and clinicians to bridge the gap in our understanding of Indigenous children’s pain and hurt and improve healthcare experiences.

About the Initiative

The ACHH Initiative is working with communities and clinicians to bridge the gap in our understanding of Indigenous children’s pain and hurt. We hope to design tools for culturally appropriate communication and treatment.

Community Members

Are you a community member that participated in our work? Would you like your community to take part in our research? See what we’ve learned so far and how we plan to move forward.

For Academics

Academic & Health Professionals

There’s lots of ways to improve the healthcare experience for Indigenous children and youth. Education is the first step! Learn more about ACHH’s research and the FIRST Approach developed for health professionals.

If we only treat one thing such as our body, and our spirit isn’t healthy and our minds and thoughts aren’t healthy, then how can you be healthy?

There is no greater pain than the loss of a child, yet Indigenous communities have born this pain for generations. @JustinTrudeau: Implement the TRC's Calls to Action, especially searching all residential school sites to find & identify every lost child. http://ow.ly/BP5750F7vDA

So proud of @a_sylliboy and all the needed and impactful work he has done to keep his community healthy, connected, informed and safe. Huge congratulations! 👏👏👏 This is what happens when Indigenous perspectives are included!

The Wabanaki 2-Spirit Alliance announced their 2021 annual gathering. This will be a 3-day virtual gathering for Two-Spirits, Indigenous Queer & Indigenous LGBTQQIA+ people from August 27–29. Details coming, but for now, save the dates.

Just another example of how artistic and cultural expression can serve as a healing journey for those hurting❤️#everychildmatters
