National Indigenous People's Day: Dr. Tyler White (Holy Eagle Shield)
Show Notes

🪶In honour of National Indigenous People’s Month, we wanted to feature a special conversation that focuses on some big things happening in the Blackfoot territories that are connected to Indigenous Health and Wellness! Recorded live at the Annual Siksika Nation Health Fair on the Siksika Nation, we share this inspiring conversation with Chief Executive Officer for Siksika Health Services for 22+ years, Dr. Tyler White (Naa Taoyi Piita Wo Taan – “Holy Eagle Shield”).

🪶Dr. White is a member of the Siksika First Nation who has worked extensively with all levels of government, frontline workers, and industry partners to enhance the coordination of health care and service delivery in Treaty 7 and beyond. 

🪶Tyler is the President of the First Nations Health Consortium of Alberta, a member of the Alberta Human Trafficking Task Force committee, Co-Chair for the Alberta First Nations COVID-19 Vaccine Task Team, and was a significant, contributing member of the Alberta government’s Valuing Mental Health review committee, and Joint Action Health Plan for the Alberta Region. 

🪶Tyler has most recently championed the signing of a Relationship Agreement and MOU with Alberta Health on Collaboration Respecting Access to Health Care.

🪶Just as his personal motto states, “Building Teams, Creating Opportunities, and being Innovative”, Tyler is a leader who is helping to build a healthier future for Indigenous communities through innovation, cultural grounding and accessing a large supportive network.

⭐️It was so wonderful to catch up with my dear friend, Dr. Tyler White!
