Wisdom Engaged demonstrates how traditional knowledge, Indigenous approaches to healing, and the insights of Western bio-medicine can complement each other when all voices are heard in a collaborative effort to address changes to Indigenous communities’ well-being. In this collection, voices of Elders, healers, physicians, and scholars are gathered in an attempt to find viable ways to move forward even while facing new challenges. Bringing these varied voices together provide a critical conversation about the nature of medicine, a demonstration of ethical commitment; and an example of successful community relationship building.
