Care and History of Indigenous Peoples

In 2014, Lung Saskatchewan began reviewing and searching out historical documentation to learn what role the Anti-Tuberculous League played in the history of Saskatchewan and the treatment of Indigenous people. We have renewed our commitment to continue our efforts through the Care and History of Indigenous Peoples project. This project is in part made possible by grants from Saskatchewan Health Research Foundation and Saskatchewan Culture. We do this work in collaboration with partners from the Office of the Treaty Commissioner, File Hills Qu’Appelle Tribal Council, the University of Saskatchewan, Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan, The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation, as well as many other committed academics and volunteers.

At Lung Saskatchewan, we are committed to reaffirming our path to reconciliation. We wish to acknowledge our 112-year history in Saskatchewan and take action to improve our commitment to serve and work with Indigenous populations and organizations of Canada.

Lung Saskatchewan continues to review our programming, policies, and we are committed to reconciliation and equitable programming for Indigenous peoples. We seek knowledge and understanding of our role in Truth and Reconciliation.

We know there are people seeking historical information regarding their family member’s journey between a residential school, Indian Hospital and or a Saskatchewan Sanatorium. Lung Saskatchewan is working with our partners to consolidate and coordinate resources for individuals and families seeking information about their loved ones and their journeys.

If you or a loved one are in need of support, the Hope for Wellness Helpline offers immediate help to all Indigenous people across Canada.

It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to offer immediate support and crisis intervention.
