Métis cancer survivor experiences documented in digital storytelling project – USask News

Mar 18, 2024

A storytelling project supported by USask and SK-NEIHR is sharing powerful stories of survival in the hopes of raising awareness for healthcare access among Métis communities.

Dr. Robert Henry (PhD), an associate professor in USask’s Department of Indigenous Studies in the College of Arts and Science who holds a Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Justice and Wellbeing, co-led this project with Dr. Chelsea Gabel (PhD) from McMaster University that highlighted stories of Métis cancer survivors in Saskatchewan.

They worked with Terri Hansen-Gardiner, a Knowledge Keeper with SK-NEIHR and a cancer survivor and support worker, to help bring the project to life. Henry said it was important to approach this project through the community, to help ensure the people sharing their stories also kept ownership of those stories.
