Is There Self-Determination in Canada’s First Nations Communities?
2016 (English)In: Journal of Northern Studies, ISSN 1654-5915, Vol. 10, no 2, 107-122 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

What is self-determination? How was the definition created? Examining First Nations health care systems has shown that definitions of self-determination for First Nations leaders and communities are different from those provided by federal and provincial governments. To ensure First Nations survival in the long term, it is important for First Nations people, leaders and communities to collaboratively develop definitions of self-determination in an Aboriginal context. This paper reviews perceptions of self-determination in health care by First Nations, and provincial and federal governments, and how relationships between these three groups are affected by differing perceptions. The impacts of colonialism are examined and discussed as they pertain to perceptions of self-determination in health care in First Nations communities. To survive, First Nations must establish firm definitions and boundaries to prevent further oppression and colonization, and to navigate control of their health and health care for future generations.
