Wisdom Engaged demonstrates how traditional knowledge, Indigenous approaches to healing, and the insights of Western biomedicine can complementeach other, thus improving health care in Northern communities. In this collection, voices of Elders, healers, physicians, and scholars are gathered to provide a critical conversation about the nature of medicine; a demonstration of ethical commitment; and an example of building successful community relationships. Editor Leslie Main Johnson is an ethnographer and ethnobiologist who has worked with Indigenous peoples in northwestern Canada since the 1980s.
