The International/National network will provide international Indigenous outreach and opportunities beyond our borders, including online workshops in Indigenous healing, and workshops in Indigenous health research. The objective is to provide trainees and new investigators with the chance to learn about traditional healing knowledge and medicine, and to obtain guidance and support from traditional healers and knowledge keepers worldwide. A feature of the Ombaashi project will be the annual congress bringing together all eight branches of the Program.
