In Canada, Indigenous people continue to experience adverse proximal, intermediate and distal determinants of health. Despite these challenges, there are some promising research directions with a focus on self-determination, data sovereignty, mentorship and leadership development initiatives, as well as increased centering of Indigenous ways of knowing, doing and being. In this presentation, I will briefly discuss my research with a focus on the prioritized directions and expand to include other relevant research conducted in Canada.
**Apologies for the late change of speaker for this seminar. Assistant Professor Anita Benoit is currently visiting The University of Sydney as the inaugural SSSHARC First Nations Fellow in the Social Sciences and the convenors of the Sociology & Criminology Seminar Series are keen to make the most of her visit by facilitating this talk during her visit.**
