Evaluate: Ya’Ya Heit – Visualizing Colonialism
Timing: 30 Minutes
Mode: In-class; Online
Ask your students to research the concept of distal determinants of health, using all or a portion of Health Inequalities and Social Determinants of Aboriginal Peoples’ Health or another document. Assign your students to small groups and provide each group with appropriate online or in-class tools for this exercise. Ask each group to develop a mind map, visually displaying their understanding of how colonialism directly relates to Indigenous experiences of mental health and wellbeing. Encourage your students to begin by incorporating the information they learned from Ya’Ya Heit and the Learning Lens and Artefacts in Context sections before moving onto outside materials.
Independent online learners should develop their own mind map as directed above.
