Dr. Sarah Hunt, Assistant Professor, First Nations and Indigenous Studies and Department of Geography, University of British Columbia

In this webinar, Dr. Sarah Hunt will provide an introduction to the health of Two-Spirit people. First, the diversity of meanings ascribed to Two-Spirit will be discussed, as a term used to describe an array of Indigenous identities and expressions of gender and sexuality. Within a social determinants framework, an overview of the impacts of colonization will be provided as a key component of understanding the health of Two-Spirit people. A strengths-based approach will be used to present an array of practical measures health practitioners, policy makers, and researchers can use to foster Two-Spirit health. The webinar will complement the recently released NCCAH publication “An Introduction to the Health of Two-Spirit People: Historical, contemporary and emergent issues”.
