First People Unite :: Healthcare
If you could create your own healthcare system, what would it look like? What kind(s) of care would you like to see available? The First People of Alaska are especially fortunate, as we own our own healthcare system. We are still in various stages of true "ownership," as it relates to culturally connected and appropriate healthcare. It's time to grow the grassroots movement of visioning a holistic, wellness-based healthcare system that includes Traditional Healing, Naturopathic Medicine, Chiropractic Medicine, Acupuncture/Chinese Medicine as frontline modalities (as they are aligned with traditional approaches to wellness).
It's time to truly reclaim and own our healthcare. Agree with me? Make sure to tell your local tribal healthcare leaders and bring it up at regional healthcare gatherings.
