Indigenous Voices: Stories of Serious Illness and Grief

The "Indigenous Voices: Stories of Serious Illness and Grief” video series is one of several new resources recently made available by the Canadian Virtual Hospice.

"In this video and print series, First Nations, Inuit and Métis from across Canada share stories about traditions, rituals and spirituality, experiences of care and after death ceremonies and grieving. The video series consists of 170 short video clips organized by theme and highlights are captured in four longer videos: Ceremony, tradition and spirituality, Caring for the patient and family, Walking along side for a good death and Honouring our loss and grief."

To find out more about this resource, the Canadian Virtual Hospice is hosting a webinar which will go into further detail on April 26th (details below).
