Mino-Bimaadiziwin: Braiding the Strands of Indigenous Health

When Ojibwe people think of mino-bimaadiziwin or the "good life," we think of sweetgrass, a braided medicine that reminds us that our physical, spiritual, and emotional health is interwoven. Dr Patty Loew(Mashkiiziibii--Bad River Ojibwe), journalism professor and Center for Native American and Indigenous Research affiliate, examines the intersection of Indigenous health, food sovereignty and environmental justice as Native nations seek a return to mino-bimaadiziwin.

This presentation is the Medical Humanities & Bioethics Montgomery Lecture Series’ first annual Carlos Montezuma Native Health Lecture, which is named in honor of the first Native American graduate of Northwestern University’s medical school.

It will be held in person for Northwestern students, faculty, and staff—in the Searle Seminar Room in the Lurie Research Building (303 E Superior). Chicago Campus. For those outside the Northwestern community and anyone who would prefer to attend remotely, the Zoom option will continue to be available.
