Know Which Medicines Are Wise For You

The Coyote's story was created to encourage conversations about wellness, and learn how to manage medications for a healthy life.

Coyote’s Food Medicines

Introducing the Coyote Story

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.

Coyote's Food Medicines story

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 - the indigenous story they helped to create about healthy medication use.

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.
