Abstract

In 1992, the Cree Board of Health and Social Services and the Injury Prevention Module of the Montreal Public Health Department began to study how Cree were being hurt from injuries in Eeyou Istchee between 1982 and 1992. The project was done as the first step leading to recommendations aimed to help prevent future injuries among the Cree. The study obtained information from the Quebec Ministry of Health's records on hospital use, individual hospital files, interviews wih families and friends of victims, and coroners' reports. This paper summarizes the results of the study on drownings.
