Honouring Our Strengths

Speaker(s) Featured: Carol Hopkins


This video exemplifies the story of Creation, as a method to connect one’s spirit to the Earth. Hopkins demonstrates the importance of Indigenous knowledge and culture based evidence, as means to educate and influence younger generations who are not as connected to their past. She makes the comparison between Western knowledge and Sacred knowledge, and addresses how knowledge plays a role in substance abuse. The focal point of this video surrounds common culture interventions and community involvement in one’s overall health.
