Indigenous Peoples and Dementia
New Understandings of Memory Loss and Memory Care
Indigenous People and Dementia brings together research and Indigenous knowledge on memory loss and memory care in later life to assist students, practitioners, and educators to decolonize their work with Indigenous peoples.
Health organizations in Canada, the United States, and New Zealand are responding to the urgent need for guidance on how best to address dementia in Indigenous communities. This innovative volume brings together, for the first time, research studies and Indigenous teaching stories on this topic. This book presents strategies for health practice and effective collaborative research informed by Indigenous knowledge and worldviews for researchers, practitioners, students, and educators.
