Resources on Aboriginal womens health research?

So Im doing a research proposal and essay. I decided to look a aboriginals in research studies and how metis not being included as well as non registered natives giving false stats?

So when they give out research stats etc usually its only on registered indians but that must cause a problem not included non registered and metis.

im taking aboriginal health and wellness, if that helps at all

Anybody that has any information, links or articles that would help me would be great, So far I am not coming up with a whole lot.

Thank you

Update:

im really trying to work on the idea that most aboriginal research does not include metis or non status indians. Any resources that might help back me up.

    No Health research would include the Métis or non-status Indians.

    Neither group fall within the Indian Health Services. Which is paid by “Indian Money” held in trust by Canada.

    Their Health Services are the same as any other Canadian citizen.

    There would be no point in gathering stats on any group that does not fall within the services provided.

    Heart disease is the leading cause of death for American Indians/Alaska Natives. Other leading causes of death include cancer, injuries, diabetes, and stroke.

    Diabetes is a serious health problem for American Indians/Alaska Natives in the U.S. They are 2.2 times as likely to have diabetes as non-Hispanic whites. Rates for risk factors for diabetes including smoking and being overweight and obese are high for American Indian/Alaska Natives.

    Accidental injuries are the leading cause of death for American Indian/Alaska Natives ages 1– 44. Most of these deaths are caused by traffic accidents and poisoning.

    Here's an excellent link you may want to peruse. It has several sub-links loaded with information.
