Sharon Ahenakew returned from an Aboriginal Nurses Association of Canada conference in Winnipeg last year with a new challenge she wanted to tackle.

During a workshop, they met a nursing student from the Maritimes who shared some of the challenges she was facing in her program. The concerns included a perceived lack of support to self-identify as Aboriginal, a perceived fear of discrimination, Aboriginal health being taught from a deficit-based approach, and a perceived lack of faculty knowledge in Aboriginal history, culture and ways of knowing.
