Lucy Duncan

Lucy Duncan

Lucy Duncan (Indigenous Elder Researcher & Advisory Committee) is Elder at Central Interior Native Health Society in Prince George, British Columbia.

My name is Lucille Duncan, First Nations of Binche Keyoh. I belong to the Lhojaboo clan. My educational background, Indigenous cultural knowledge and life experiences have equipped me well to be part of this research. It is an honour to take part in this particular research as I work downtown Prince George at Central Interior Native Health Society as a Dakelh Elder and previously as an Aboriginal Support Worker. CINHS provides health services for the Aboriginal population and diverse group of people who struggle with mental health and addiction, homelessness, and chronic diseases. As an Elder, I provide services in spiritual guidance and counseling, cultural practices, family support, and connect people with other health or community resources. My experiences as Aboriginal and a frontline worker has lead me to ensure that all people receive adequate and proper health services especially in the area of treating people with respect, dignity,  building healthy relationships and understanding the history of Aboriginal people in Canada.
