  Abstract The excerpt has been taken from the article: Holisic health interests us both greatly. We are always looking for ways incorporate it into our lives and our work. What we found in Canada was that spirituality and spiritual links to culture were really strong. We saw that weaving these links through health and healing was much more effective in meeting people’s needs with real healing. We also saw the inclusion of Elders in health programs, and the incredible strength and depth that this gave. The combining of western medicine and traditional culture and healing practices allows more holistic approaches to modern diseases and issues. It was also clearly expressed that health concerns today, such as diabetes, are directly linked to the effects of Residential Schooling and colonization. We do not think that it is so clearly expressed at home in Australia, and there is still a lot of “victim blaming” related to health concerns and social disadvantage.In Canada we also found that Aboriginal people are very open and willing to share with other cultures, respecting where other people are coming from.
