Native Voices Exhibit

Come visit Native Voices: Native Peoples' Concepts of Health and Illness, an exhibit on display at the Arizona Health Sciences Library from August 25-December 6, 2015.

This traveling exhibit, produced by the National Library of Medicine, examines concepts of health and medicine among contemporary American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians. It features interviews and works from Native people living on reservations, in tribal villages, and in cities. Topics include: Native views of land, food, community, earth/nature, and spirituality as they relate to Native health; the relationship between traditional healing and Western medicine in Native communities; economic and cultural issues that affect the health of Native communities; efforts by Native communities to improve health conditions; and the role of Native Americans in military service and healing support for returning Native veterans.
