In Native Culture, to heal a person, you must first heal the family. Using latest research in areas of lactation and trauma, she will discuss how inter-generational trauma affects First Nations Communities today. Looking at Social Determinants of Health as a base for the inequalities of health in Canada and the constant uphill climb First Nations Women constantly battle, it will be shown that Breastfeeding can help heal women, children, and families from inter-generational trauma.
