This brief interview with Dr. Menno Boldt discusses factors which contribute to the high rate of suicide among Native people in Alberta. Boldt states that living conditions for Native peoples must be improved before the number of suicides can be alleviated. He argues that money must be provided to train Natives in suicide prevention. Non-natives cannot solve the problem with their solutions because they are part of the factors which contribute to the high Native suicide rate. (0 refs.)
