SHHRC Insigh Development Grant, 2019-2020.

The primary goal of our study is to collaborate with Indigenous communities to inform the development of an Indigenous focused physical literacy model to increase mobility, physical activity and ultimately promote aging in place among Indigenous Older Adults living on rural reserves in Saskatchewan. In collaboration with our community partners [Northern Inter-Tribal Health Authority (NITHA) and Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism (SSM)] we will invite Indigenous community members (including Indigenous older adults, their families and caregivers, Elders and Traditional Knowledge Keepers, and health care professionals) to share their stories and experiences associated with culturally specific physical activity opportunities for older adults.
