  Abstract This background paper presents an overview of suicide in Indigenous peoples in countries where there is a dominant White society. The countries identified for this background paper share similar colonial histories and all but Greenland have populations where the Indigenous population is significantly smaller in comparison to the non-Indigenous/mainstream population.

The countries reviewed for suicide rates were Australia, Aotearoa/New Zealand, Canada, the United States of America, Greenland, and Scandinavian countries of Finland, Norway, Sweden, and Russia . These are all countries where the Indigenous peoples have elevated suicide rates compared to the non-Indigenous/mainstream population (Pollock, Naicker, Loro, Mulay & Colman, 2018).

Whilst definite figures for Greenland are unavailable, a rate of 82.8 suicide deaths per 100 000 in 2015 was identified in an analysis of suicides (Hersher, 2016). Greenland Inuit people make up 90% of the population of Greenland, and it shares a colonial history.
