Aboriginal Children's Hurt & Healing (ACHH) Initiative: First Nation Community Health Video

  • Organization: Aboriginal Children's Hurt & Healing (ACHH) Initiative


The Aboriginal Children’s Hurt & Healing (ACHH) Initiative is a research initiative aimed at improving
Indigenous children’s healthcare experiences. The ACHH Initiative seeks to recognize the pain and hurt
experience of Indigenous children and youth by gathering individual stories and artwork to better
understand cultural differences for both the emotional and physical pain experience. The ACHH
Initiative, in collaboration with several First Nations communities across the Mi’kma’ki and Wolastoqey
regions, offered conversation and art sessions to community members. A knowledge sharing video
communicating community ideas from this work was developed, with youth identifying emotional pain
depicted through artwork. This knowledge represents a profound cultural understanding of pain as
something that is experienced on multiple levels - physical, emotional, mental and spiritual. This video
was produced by RPM Productions.
