About

Haudenosaunee Health Services has aligned with our Primary Health Care Professionals, Dr. Amy Montour and Dr. Karen Hill, to nourish the growth of Indigenous Health Care Providers in our community. We recognize prior documentation (Truth & Reconciliation; 2015 and 2020 Vision Rountable, Six Nations; 2002,) which identifies the need for an improvement within our Indigenous communities.

We will continuously work towards developing pathways for our community members and our Indigenous communities to expand our representation within the healthcare field and to encourage a “return home” for these health professionals. With this vision, Haudenosaunee Health Services & partner’ goals are to “Plant the Seeds” to a complete well rounded system which will nourish an excellent healthcare plan for all Indigenous people. The vision will also compliment our existing healthcare system on Six Nations and neighbouring communities.

Through partnerships and dialogue, we hope to open the doors to (i) Education (ii) Employment & Training (iii) Delivery of essential health services within our community. This goal is to encompass our community members to “Take Care of Each Other”.

Please join us in our journey to “Bringing Quality Healthcare Home”





Meet the community members behind this project!

I am a Mohawk, Wolf, raised and living on Six Nations my entire life. I am a mother of 4 great children and grandmother of 3 beautiful grandchildren. My husband and I have been blessed with our lives, through good times and bad times, we have instilled within our children that when all is said and done, it is your family that will carry you through these times.

As most of you are aware, I am an active community member who has volunteered with Six Nations Minor Lacrosse basically my entire life. Growing up, my parents; Larry and Joyce Hill, along with my 2 brothers, were active volunteers promoting minor lacrosse here at Six Nations. Through this, they have taught us the importance of giving back to our community and expecting nothing but the reward of
knowing we have given our youth the opportunity to not only play lacrosse, but to develop a sense of pride in our community.

What some may or may not know, is that I have worked in Radiology for almost 30 years. I attended Mohawk College into the Radiography program and have been employed at the Hamilton Health Sciences; Hamilton General Hospital, Juravinski Hospital and also McMaster Children’s Hospital and also currently at the Brantford General Hospital. My education allowed me to specialize in X-ray, CT and currently MRI.

We have an abundance of highly skilled and trained health care professionals from our community, and by initiating a dialogue with each other, I truly believe we can join together and build a future for improved health care for Indigenous people.
Through community engagement we can collectively be able to provide an (1) Educational Pathway for interested community members (2) Employment & Training Pathway for our community and thirdly and most importantly an opportunity to “Bring Quality Healthcare Home”.

I am a Mohawk, turtle clan and Six Nations has been my home for my entire life.  I was that familiar face working at my family’s burger place “Silver Star Burgers”.  

I worked for 30 years in the health field as a medical radiation technologist, in the field of Nuclear Medicine.  I graduated from the Michener Institute in Toronto followed by training in London Ontario.  After graduating I accepted a job at the Hamilton General Hospital.  My position there involved charge technologist and clinical coordinator for the Michener students training program. I am currently employed at the Brantford General Hospital, which has brought me closer to my home.  

Throughout the years I have done volunteer work, assisting with coaching both minor baseball and minor hockey.  My earlier years I volunteered at Iroquois Lodge, what a great experience it was for me! 

I am looking forward to now bringing my leadership skills to assist our community in the research and potential expansion of our health services.
