Today we chat with Angelina Heer, the director of Nutsihpiluwewicik. Nutsihpiluwewicik began its journey in 2008 when the Faculty of Nursing established the Aboriginal Nursing Initiative (ANI) at the University of New Brunswick. ANI strives to provide culturally appropriate support and experiences that would assist Indigenous students on their academic journey. Since its establishment, we have increased the number of Indigenous nursing graduates in the nursing program. In 2017, Wolastoqiyik Elder Imelda Perley gifted ANI with the name Nutsihpiluwewicik, which is a Wolastoqiyik word for healing clan or clan of healers.

We chat with Ang about climate change and the role Indigenous people can play in helping to mitagate the effects of climate change
