DIABESITY (Diabetes and obesity) is the leading cause of death among American Indian people. Our traditional Native lifestyle was based on active movement and balance. The changes in our diet and our sedentary lifestyle have had a major impact on our health. Diseases like smallpox and measles were a threat to us in the past, brought to us in the form of blankets. Today, diseases like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and cancer are a threat to our population, brought to us unhealthy foods and sedentary lifestyles focused on sitting in from of cellphones, televisions, and other electronics. The 2018 Health Initiative will help us work together to learn and enact healthier lifestyles!
