Good Medicine

​​The Good Medicine Initiative is a series of online articles and posts that highlight the strengths we possess as Indigenous people.

​​​​​​​​​​Good Medicin​​​​e M​essages​

The Good Medicine Initiative shares how we, as Indigenous people across BC, are using culture, traditional knowledge and spirituality to support ourselves and each other during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Resilience, lateral kindness and humour – these inherent strengths and others are featured in positive stories that highlight how Indigenous people are responding to the pandemic. 

Good Medicine messages are captured and shared in four categories.

Community Stories​ – good news stories from Indigenous communities, both urban and on-reserve

Wellness Champions – stories of inspirational role models from First Nations communities

FNHA as a Wellness Partner – information, education and tools to support your wellness 

Living It – contests, challenges, events and special days that recognize how Indigenous people are “walking the talk”
