Keynote Lecture

The Development of Indigenous Knowledges in Public Health: Epistemological Diversity as an Essential Component of Health Equity

by Bonnie M. Duran, DrPH

Associate Professor, Health Services, University of Washington School of Public Health


This presentation discusses some major challenges to a monolithic approach to Western knowledge development in public health spaces; and conversely, celebrates the roots and promoters of indigenous public health knowledge and practice. Examples of knowledge development in eco-systems of decolonized University space will be highlighted, as well as ways for students of color to survive and thrive in mainstream University settings.
