This toolkit is designed to support Indigenous organizations with the planning and implementation of community-level COVID-19 vaccination clinics, in collaboration with mainstream organizations such as local public health units, primary care agencies, and/or hospital settings.
We would like to thank Dr. Annelind Wakegjig and Dr. Rebecca Wray for reviewing the Gashkiwidoon toolkit and lending their clinical expertise. Gashkiwidoon (gash-ga-we-toon) is an Ojibway word thought to mean ‘able to take, carry it’.
IPHCC has developed the Ne’iikaanigaana Toolkit-Creating Safer Environments for Indigenous Peoples, to support organizations on their journey towards cultural safety.
Ne’iikaanigaana (knee-kah-nih-gih-nah) is an Anishinaabe word generally thought to mean ‘all our relations’, with a more literal meaning of ‘seeing ourselves reflected in creation. We are the pine trees, the flowers, the water, the animals, and they are us.’
