Abstract
The health disparities affecting Indigenous peoples in Canada might well be understood as a national epidemic. Although progress has been made in the last decade towards both understanding and ameliorating Indigenous health inequalities, very little research or writing has expanded a social determinants of health framework to account for the unique histories and present realities of Indigenous peoples in this country. This timely edited collection addresses this significant knowledge gap, exploring the ways that multiple health determinants beyond the social―from colonialism to geography, from economy to biology―converge to impact the health status of Indigenous peoples in Canada.
This unique collection, comprised largely of contributions by Indigenous authors, offers the voices and expertise of First Nations, Inuit, and Metis writers from across Canada. The multitude of health determinants of Indigenous peoples are considered in a selection of chapters that range from scholarly papers by research experts in the field, to reflective essays by Indigenous leaders. Appropriate throughout a range of disciplines, including Health Studies, Indigenous Studies, Public and Population Health, Community Health Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, and Social Work, this engaging text broadens the social determinants of health framework to better understand health inequality. Most importantly, it does so by placing front and center the voices and experiences of Indigenous peoples.

Abstract
In Decolonizing Trauma Work, Renee Linklater explores healing and wellness in Indigenous communities on Turtle Island. Drawing on a decolonizing approach, which puts the soul wound of colonialism at the centre, Linklater engages ten Indigenous health care practitioners in a dialogue regarding Indigenous notions of wellness and wholistic health, critiques of psychiatry and psychiatric diagnoses, and Indigenous approaches to helping people through trauma, depression and experiences of parallel and multiple realities. Through stories and strategies that are grounded in Indigenous worldviews and embedded with cultural knowledge, Linklater offers purposeful and practical methods to help individuals and communities that have experienced trauma. Decolonizing Trauma Work, one of the first books of its kind, is a resource for education and training programs, health care practitioners, healing centres, clinical services and policy initiatives."

Abstract
Well-Being in the Urban Aboriginal Community offers a selection of the papers presented at Fostering Biimaadiziwin, a national research conference held in Toronto in 2011. The conference grew out of a desire to add a new perspective to research concerning Aboriginal peoples living in urban environments - a positive perspective that focuses on strengths and assets, rather than problems. In this volume, scholars, researchers, policy-makers, community members, and practitioners examine the ways that Aboriginal peoples in Canada are pursuing rand achieving biimaadiziwin (or "the good life") in urban settings. Their papers explore the urban Aboriginal situation in such areas as cultural sovereignty, identity, self-determination, social capital, and education. The result is a valuable resource that offers insight into the lives of urban Aboriginal peoples, providing information that will guide future studies of the joys, frustrations, rewards, and challenges of Aboriginal peoples living good lives in Canada's cities and towns
