Public Health Considerations During COVID-19 for Sundance Leaders

Manitoba • English • Public Health, Traditional Practices

We recognize that Ceremonial Leaders, Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Traditional Healers have protected and<br/>sustained knowledge and practices through many challenging contexts including times when ceremonies were<br/>prohibited by Canadian law. They have also adapted ceremonial practices to meet evolving needs like adopting<br/>universal precautions to prevent the transmission of blood borne infections. These leaders are best placed to<br/>make informed decisions about how to continue ceremonial practices in the current context as well.<br/>
