The Voice of Our People

The Barrie Area Native Advisory Circle (BANAC), in association with community partners, developed a 4 part video series available on their website to increase cultural awareness of First Nations, Métis and Inuit worldviews for those working in social services, such as health care providers.

One of BANAC’s goals is to assist long-term care facilities and home care health providers by promoting cultural sensitization to their organizations to improve the quality of care provided to Aboriginal clients.

The videos consist of interviews with Elders and Senators from First Nations, Métis and Inuit communities sharing their experiences and wisdom in an oral tradition. Each video is accompanied by a viewing guide which outlines the overview and learning objectives of the video, profiles of the featured Elders and Senators, and features a “fill in the blanks” script for note taking.

The video series and viewing guide are also available in French.
