AlterNative: An International Journal of Indigenous Peoples

Colonization and health have an intricate relationship for indigenous peoples. For many indigenous groups, colonization brought with it diseases that proved devastating for peoples without immunity, but it also brought with it ideas of health that were different from those carried by the more than 5,000 groups that identify as indigenous today. With traditional approaches to health standing alongside mainstream structures in many nations today, health becomes a sphere where the politics of indigeneity and race are negotiated.
