Exploring Indigenous Heritage, Culture and Family

There are more than 476 million indigenous peoples living across the world. The impact of their diverse cultures, traditions and knowledge has left an indelible mark on history that continues to shape the future.

Dr. Marie Natrall ’19, a Walden University PhD in Public Policy and Administration graduate who is Canadian First Nations, Squamish and Northern Tutchone, and Dr. Jerry Gibson ’19, a PhD in Clinical Psychology alumnus who is mostly Blackfoot Indian, share what they would like others to know about their indigenous heritage and the issues facing their communities. They also highlight the impact their culture and families have had on them and more broadly in North America.

In addition, you can learn more about them and other indigenous peoples in Spotlight on Walden’s “Celebrating Indigenous Peoples’ Excellence.”
