Aboriginal People


PDF | Vol. 5, No. 1 (2008)

This issue of Visions stirs new ground like no other issue has. If you identify yourself as Aboriginal, First Nation, Inuit or Metis, you will likely find much that resonates with you. If you don't indentify yourself that way, you will still learn a lot from this issue about the role of identity, culture, empowerment and community. Our amazing contributors have weaved mental well-being and wellness into a complex tapestry with spiritual, phsycial and social well-being, as well as the historical unjustices and current realities faced by many Aboriginal people including family violence and abuse, child neglect, trauma, discrimination, poverty, and homelessness.
