The First Nations Centre works on protecting traditional knowledge, including traditional healing practices. It seems to present their information in a way that is acceptable to the western mind.

The Assembly of First Nations has a very extensive site, including many resources and publications to do with health. The site includes information about mental health and social determinants of health.
