With Rhianna Millman of Métis
Date: February 28, 2024 Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM PST
Rhianna Millman is a citizen of Métis Nation British Columbia with ancestry from the Red River Settlement in what is today called Manitoba. She is the family advocate for Keegan Combes and co-author of "Remembering Keegan: a BC First Nations Case Study Reflection" developed in partnership with First Nations Health Authority, Office of the Chief Medical Officer. Grounded in ceremony, Remembering Keegan was gifted by Keegan’s family and community to the BC healthcare system as a learning tool to help shape the Cultural Safety and Humility transformation required in BC.
Rhianna has raised awareness and advocated for accountability, change, and transparency so that what happened to Keegan never happens to anyone else. Remembering Keegan is the first case study reflection in the province ever shared by BC First Nations and is being used by health organizations across the country to further learning and action in Cultural Safety, Cultural Humility, and anti-Indigenous racism. Rhianna serves as the Indigenous Cultural Safety and Humility Consultant with BC College of Nurses and Midwives where she is the first leadership level Indigenous employee within BC’s largest regulatory college. Rhianna works everyday to advance the commitments made to eliminate Indigenous-specific racism within BCCNM and throughout the BC Health System.
"...Elders talk about how you never go to visit someone empty handed, meaning when you go to ask someone a question, you'd bring them an offering. A fish, a blanket, some beads, something."
