Public entities and Indigenous communities are developing ways of creating true partnerships, and in this "encore" from the 2020 IAP2 North American Virtual Conference, we present two sessions on that theme.

Aistowaípiiyaóp: Walking Together looks at a partnership that started with a racial slur directed by someone at Alberta Health Services towards a member of a First Nation in Alberta. Subsequently, AHS apologized, but went beyond that, making cultural training mandatory for staff, building Indigenous Health action plans and a provincial Indigenous health strategy and refreshing the Wisdom Council – all through a collaborative approach with communities, grounded in the traditional ceremony of Alberta’s Indigenous Peoples.

Janine Sakatch of AHS and Harley Crowshoe, the inaugural chairman of the AHS Wisdom Council, will share about this journey that continues to this day – through the development of the Calgary Indigenous Health Action Plan and digital stories that inspired it.

They'll be joined by the presenters of Partnerships are All About Relationships, describing a partnership of the Government of Canada and ten Indigenous communities from Canada's coasts, developing, testing and evaluating a user-friendly web-based system that increases access to local maritime data for Indigenous peoples, coastal communities and other stakeholders.

Nathalie Filion, from Transport Canada, Marie-Pierre Parenteau, now Director, Inuit-Crown Policy and Partnerships, with Crown-Indigenous Relations and Northern Affairs, and Tyrone Raddi of the Tuktoyaktuk Hunters and Trappers Committee will share how they addressed a major question which emerged, namely, how to create relationships at the start to ensure partnerships are maintained through the different steps of the project.

You'll learn how a team of public servants became leaders in engagement with Indigenous peoples, developing a new understanding of what is required to build effective relationships and partnerships between institutions and Indigenous peoples.
