Cultural Safety

What, exactly, is cultural safety? Why is cultural safety important in addressing the social inequities experienced by Indigenous people?
Cultural safety considers the social and historical contexts of health and health care inequities and is not focused on understanding “Indigenous Culture.” Many people come to the San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety training program expecting to learn about the formal cultural ceremonies and practices of Indigenous people because they have been led to believe that this is the key to working with people who are culturally different from themselves. San’yas learners are often surprised to learn that a cultural safety approach to providing care is about paying attention to the roots of health and health care inequities, such as colonization.
