Know which medicines are wise for you

Coyote’s Food Medicines story was created by Jean William, Cecelia de Rose, and Clara Camille, Elders of the Northern Secwepmc, to encourage conversations about wellness and how to manage medications for a healthy life. Storytelling has always been a traditional way in Indigenous communities to share knowledge, wisdom and humour.

Hear From Elders

In the short video to go along with the booklet, Secwepemc Elders, Jean, Cecelia & Clara share their perspectives on prescription medications, with excerpts from Coyote’s Food Medicines.


Support Grassroots Distribution

Drawing Wisdom works with Peers as we engage in community-style distribution. Support our grassroots model, which will include a community tour of "HIV: Healing Inner Voices" and a virtual launch of "Down Town Stories."


The booklet and video were produced by Drawing Wisdom. The project is a collaboration between the Shared Care Committee (a partnership of Doctors of BC and the BC government) and the First Nations Health Authority.
