  • Description:
    American Indians and Alaska Natives are as diverse as the places they come from, with unique cultures, languages, histories, arts, and rituals. Yet all share a deep connection to lifeways that can sustain health and wellness.

    While fraught relationships with the US government have compromised lifeways, culture, and health and wellness, American Indians and Alaska Natives have persevered and sustained themselves and much of their cultures. However, poorer health and social outcomes and lower life expectancies than other racial and ethnic groups in the United States are a reality for many American Indians and Alaska Natives.

    In response, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) works with American Indian tribes, Alaska Native villages, tribal organizations, and tribal epidemiology centers to promote health, prevent disease, reduce health disparities, and strengthen connections to culture and lifeways that improve health and wellness.
