The Nebraska Health, Education, Advocacy and Leadership across Indigenous and Native Generations Project (NE-HEALING) in the College of Public Health at the University of Nebraska Medical Center supports both tribal and urban American Indian and Alaska Native communities by promoting ways of knowing, being and doing that align with indigenous knowledge, practices and approaches to health and wellness.
This initiative is committed to supporting the revitalization of AI/AN public health through culturally relevant and innovative practice, research, teaching and service that:
- Honors indigenous ways of knowing, being, and doing to develop deeper understandings of indigenous health;
- Builds respectful intercultural, intergenerational and interdisciplinary relationships that support and promote public health, the medical humanities and innovations in health; and
- Generates culturally grounded knowledge, curriculum, models, tools and practices that tribal and urban AI/AN communities can employ in health promotion and preventive and societal medicine.
