Learn more about our work

We work to connect with Indigenous Peoples to understand the life experiences, opportunities, and challenges that affect their health and well-being, as these factors inform pandemic response.

Community partnership is at the heart of our work. We center the strength and wisdom that is embedded in communities’ ancestral traditions and teachings.

We ensure that Indigenous stories are heard and celebrated through digital community engagement, knowledge sharing, and research.
