2017 Grantee

CCUIH is dedicated to increasing visibility of Urban Indians not only to bring knowledge of Urban Indian issues to the public and policy decision-makers, but also to build a sense of belonging for Urban Indians through reflections of self, wellness and community in healthcare settings and online.

How the program contributes to peace and social consciousness:

Their program Traditions of Health Project advancing the cultural revitalization efforts of Urban Indian communities in California by hosting healing circles with Traditional Healers, elders, and youth to lead discussions in traditional protocol for healing and peace in the Urban Indian community.

How we Collaborated:
