The project will support public engagement with myself and Indigenous community members. It includes inital discussions and an online event that will gather important information as to what community members feel should be and should not be included in the development of an Indigenous health and wellness course at Memorial University. Goals of the project include transparency,collaboration, diversity, engagement, respect and excellence with strengthening my existing relationship(s) with Indigenous communities. Myself as a Mi’kmaw woman I am connected to community and have developed long lasting lifetime relationships. While these relationships are not all new, the development and first offering of an Indigenous health and wellness course is new. I want to ensure that the foundational work necessary for such a course is strengthened through collaboration, respect and engagement. Community members will be notified of the event via social media, email and through word of mouth. All information about the event and the future course will be distributed widely on various platforms and through word of mouth. Participants will be asked to register via myself or online. Once registered I will distribute a craft kit consisting of material to make a medicine bag, traditional medicines and instructions. During the meeting participants will be able to complete the craft while engaging in conversation centering around 2 main questions, " What would you like to have included in an Indigenous health and wellness course" and "What would you not like to see included in an Indigenous health and wellness course". A knowledge keeper will be present and available to have discussion, provide teachings and help with any medicine bag questions. It will be an unstructured format and there will be an online survey individuals can choose to complete so that it can be an anonymous option if they do not want to be identified. Whoever does join the event will be provided an honorarium in the form of a gift card for their time and contribution for allowing myself to gain valuable information for course development. The potential benefits for all involved is vast. The project has the potential to strengthen and create relationships with the Indigenous community, demonstrates an Indigenous faculty member creating a course at Memorial University that speaks to the Truth and Reconciliation Calls to Action, and allows a venue for community to have a voice in the creation of an important course, meeting many objectives within Memorial’s Public Engagement Framework.
