INFORMATION-GATHERING INTERVIEWS BEING CONDUCTED
FOR THOSE HAVING BEEN SUBJECT TO, AND OR WITNESSED RACIST OR DISCRIMINATORY BEHAVIOR WHILE RECEIVING HEALTHCARE IN ALBERTA INVOLVING SIKSIKA NATION MEMBERS
Siksika Nation Chief and Council have received an overwhelming number of reports about Siksika Nation members suffering discriminatory, racist, or otherwise harmful treatment at Alberta hospitals and healthcare facilities.
To help address this issue, Chief and Council have authorized the firm JFK Law Corporation to conduct information-gathering interviews with Siksika Nation members. These interviews may be used to assist in potential litigation for the protection of Siksika Nation members and their families while receiving healthcare.
If you or anyone you know:
• has been discriminated against, or has been treated negatively based on race, ethnicity, or status as a Siksika Nation member, while receiving healthcare in Alberta; or
• has witnessed a racist or discriminatory incident or event involving a Siksika Nation member at an Alberta healthcare facility,
then you are encouraged to contact either JFK Law or Siksika Health Services by phone, email, or mail:
