Panel discussion moderated by Connie Walker, lead reporter for CBC News Aboriginal.

Traditional Opening by Jan Kahehti:io Longboat and the Well Living House Counsel of Indigenous Grandparents.

Far too often Indigenous experiences are left out in discussions about racism and anti-racism. Further, stories about Indigenous health in Canada are frequently presented without the context needed to make sense of the information provided.

What are the fundamental ways in which racism is responsible for the alarming disparities in health between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people?
