You will hear from two women with professional knowledge and personal experience on the following topics. For more information on our guest speakers, please see their photos below.

  • Cultural competency
  • Concerns in Indigenous communities
  • Recommended resources
  • Barriers to health
  • What education is most needed in Indigenous communities? Where are the gaps?
  • Shaylynn will discuss traditional knowledge in a contemporary world, using the Cree language on social media, and her experiences living traditionally (ie raising children on the trapline)
  • Alycia will discuss her experiences in birth work in the Calgary area. She may also talk about her articles about 2-Spirit and their relevance to women’s health
