Welcome to The Center for Native Health
The mission of the Center for Native Health, Inc., is to integrate community-based traditional knowledge into all facets of Native health care and education and to promote wellness and balance for Indigenous peoples. Our goal is to facilitate community-identified programs that reintegrate concepts of community, language, and health.
The vision of the Center for Native Health is the reduction of health disparities for Native communities through engagement in the preservation and respectful application of traditional knowledge.
We believe in the inherent value of traditional wisdom and practices.
The Center for Native Health facilitates and provides culturally grounded consultation, training and education in the following areas:
- Health, medicine, traditional knowledge and language as it applies to the health care & education of tribal communities.
- Comprehensive, structured preparation of Native youth for post-secondary educational success, especially in health-related careers.
- Professional certifications in the areas of health, environmental health, leadership, and Indigenous sciences.
