James Makokis on Indigenous ways of knowing and allyship within the medical profession

For Dr. James Makokis (MD ’10), health and wellbeing is rooted in the word miyo-pimatisiwin, which roughly translates to “living the good life.”

James Makokis is from Saddle Lake Cree Nation in Treaty Number Six Territory. With a family medicine practice in northeastern Alberta and a transgender health-focused practice in South Edmonton, Makokis is a leader in the areas of Indigenous and transgender health.
