Gathering Grounds - Centering Community + Accountability

December 7, 2021 10:00 AM

We are honored to welcome Drs Heather Gifford (Ngāti Hauiti and Te Ātihaunui a Pāpārangi) and Amohia Boulton (Ngāti Ranginui, Ngai te Rangi, Ngāti Pukenga, Ngāti Mutunga and Te Āti Awa o te Waka a Māui) from the Whakauae Research for Māori Health and Development and Raquel Aviles, MHI (Yaqui) from the Pascua Yaqui Tribe to our session today.  We will discuss the centering of community in Indigenous public health practice. What does it mean to center-community? Why is it important? How do we talk about these values/ principles within our public health systems and with outside partners? How was it applied during the pandemic? The pandemic has re-focused attention on public health in the U.S. and Aotearoa/ New Zealand. This is an opportunity to re-frame and ground public health in Indigenous knowledge and practices that center our communities.  We look forward to sharing stories and experiences.  We anticipate this session will generate ideas for tools, training, and resources for future exchanges.
