This journal article describes a project that used collaborative and decolonizing methods to gather ideas and opinions from multiple stakeholders, including students, community members, faculty, and administration, to guide the process of adding Indigenous health content to the curriculum to prepare students to work effectively with Indigenous populations. This project sought to gather data and opinions regarding the training of medical students through a process of Indigenizing research and education in order to address the systemic barrier to health and well-being and provider bias that Indigenous patients experience.
