Gathering Wisdom for a Shared Journey VI

Since their inception, the Gathering Wisdom for a Shared Journey forums have set the stage for one of-a-kind dialogues in which BC First Nations communities provide wisdom for building and transforming a more effective health system from the ground up. On October 1, 2013, we achieved a historic milestone as operations of the First Nations and Inuit Health BC Region of Health Canada were transferred into the First Nations Health Authority (FNHA).

In recognition of this milestone, we hosted the largest ceremony of its kind called: “Honouring our Shared Journey: Commemorating the Transfer” during the opening of Gathering Wisdom for a Shared Journey VI on October 22, 2013. The ceremony offered the opportunity to reflect on our collective achievements and to honour our continued journey.

Gathering Wisdom for a Shared Journey VI occurred only three weeks after Phase Two of the transfer of programs and services from FNIH to the FNHA. The Forum provided an opportunity to begin to envision how the existing health system can be transformed to support First Nations philosophies of a holistic wellness system. Three presentation streams – Governance Strategy, Wellness Partnership and Sharing Wisdom – provided delegates with broad opportunities for learning, networking, and collaboration.
