“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” – Chief Seattle, Duwamish Tribe (1780-1866)

At Baawaating FHT we are committed to the recommendations as laid out by the Truth And Reconciliation Commission Of Canada to:
- Reframing the discussion of Indigenous health inequities and differences in care from “patient blaming” to “system enabling”
- Acknowledge the presence of underlying ideologies of racism and colonization
- Recognize that widespread apathy and disdain can be common when addressing First Nations, Métis and Inuit health gaps
- Ensure messages related to education, research and service delivery are consistent with the Commission’s message that the health gaps are the result of policy choices past and present
- Recognize that the same policy choices that negatively impact health create unequal opportunity for First Nations, Métis and Inuit people to meet the eligibility criteria to apply to employment within the health professions and system with an aim to reconsider eligibility requirements, admissions processes, and support for First Nations, Métis and Inuit people
- Identify actual differences in care, including the presence/absence of primary care services.
