Trent U – Medicine Unbundled: A Journey Through The Minefields of Indigenous Health Care

Event Date: November 2, 2017
A Pine Tree Book Talk – Chanie Wenjack – School for Indigenous Studies

A talk by Gary Geddes, the author and editor of 49 books, recipient of the Commonwealth Poetry Prize (American Region) and Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Literary Excellence. “Medicine Unbundled” is the result of 4 years of research with Elders to uncover shocking stories from a segregated, underfunded Indian hospital system. Forced sterilizations, electric shock experiments, and other abusive treatments were a part of this system, designed to keep Indigenous people separate from other segments of society.
