Indigenous Well-Being



Key factors to Indigenous well-being has long been controlled by those outside Indigenous communities, resulting in violent discrimination, widespread poverty, and limited access to resources and healthcare. Self-determination and revitalization from within has been strongly celebrated in Indigenous communities around the world, who have been enduring through generations of abuse by colonial and imperial political, military, and religious powers. Everyone has the right to live a vibrant life in their full identity, and the struggle for physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being can find support from those who understand and validate the complexities, nuance, pain, and joy of the community’s lived experiences.
