The research purpose is to address gaps related mental health services for Indigenous, First Nations, Metis, and Inuit, people in Canada. Current tools used in mental health service delivery within Canada may be considered inappropriate for Indigenous populations due to culturally diversity and lack of cultural safety. Within Canada there is a lack of Indigenous specific mental health resources, services, and interventions. Some examples of Indigenous mental health interventions can include land-based healing approaches, such as sweat ceremonies. Land-based and cultural experiences provide Indigenous therapeutic approaches alongside mainstream mental health approaches connections foster strength in cultural identity by connecting to land, family, and community
