Karina L . Walters , MSW , PH.D., Professor and Katherine Hall Chambers Scholar, University of Washington, will give the Second Annual Dr. Ronald K. Barrett Memorial Lecture presented by the Department of Psychological Science.

Throughout history, settler colonialism has endeavored to erase the lived experiences and histories of American Indian and Alaska Native Peoples. Yet, Indigenous populations, particularly Indigenous women, remain strong and resilient pillars of communities. Oftentimes these [her]stories are missed in public health initiatives as a result of settler colonialism’s perpetual drive to erase and silence.

This presentation will provide an overview of the latest advances in designing culturally derived, Indigenist health promotion interventions among American Indian and Alaska Native women. This work illustrates the importance of growing culturally derived health promotion interventions rooted in Indigenist thoughtways and land-based practices to grow Indigenous thrivance and community well-being.
