Understanding and embracing indigenous healing approaches is an important way to move forward in addressing healthcare inequalities, especially in Native communities. In this STAR Center webinar, our presenters shared examples of self-care and healing approaches that are used in urban, rural and frontier communities, described the history, foundations, values and standards inherent in these approaches as well as offered recommendations for how these approaches may be better engaged by Native people in states, territories and tribal governments across the country.

We hope you are engaged, educated and empowered by this provocative and inspiring webinar presentation on approaches to eliminating the health and mental health disparities in our communities.
