Insights and Perspectives

Barbara O’Neill

Ms O’Neill discusses the historical colonial context of elder abuse, where poverty and racism continue to keep indigenous people from participating fully in the economy which leads to further poverty and trauma.

Ms O’Neill argues that strategies must involve indigenous communities and take their particular needs into account.
