Integrating Indigenous history in medical education prepares future providers to better understand and critique their practice, their patient collaborators and the causes and consequences of disease. Indigenous history offers students ready access to practise cultural humility and develop facility with diverse medical epistemologies. Furthermore, as providers who will practise in a world characterised by a climate catastrophe and its manifold health consequences, Indigenous history is critical for contextualising the climate crisis, the manifold contemporary responses and avenues towards reckoning and redress.
