We prioritize Indigenous knowledge and traditional practices to improve community health. We seek opportunities to integrate cultural beliefs and practices into public health and health care services.
Indigenous Peoples are the original architects of wellness systems – ways of life that kept us and our environment healthy. Together, we can advance a shared vision for vibrant, healthy American Indian and Alaska Native communities.
Public health institutes work with a range of multi-sector and multi-disciplinary partners towards a shared mission that creates conditions leading to improved health. Seven Directions aims to support the tribal and urban Indian public health system in much the same manner, but in a way that embodies Indigenous knowledge, practices and approaches to wellness.
