People at Laurier

Dr. Gus Hill, Social Work- Waterloo Campus Gus Hill is an Anishnaabe Professor in the Aboriginal Field of Study in the Faculty of Social Work. Gus focuses on wellness-related research projects that are for, and by, indigenous people. Dr. Hill believes in research that places control, direction and ownership firmly in the hands of the knowledge-holders and indigenous communities. "Over the past four decades, more and more Aboriginal people have reclaimed their cultural identities. Traditional healing often serves as the beginning of their journeys into cultural re-education, as well as holistic wellness. Since there is a lack of understanding of traditional healing and Indigenous people in mainstream Canadian culture, I strongly value that I work at an institution where I can teach, as well as conduct culturally congruent research, toward better understanding traditional healing." says Gus Hill.
