Native American Heritage Month recognizes the histories, invaluable contributions and livelihood of American Indian and Alaska Native people in the United States. During this observance, we honor the rich diversity of American Indian and Alaska Native cultures, traditions and languages and how this heritage intersects with health. By working together to raise awareness of health disparities and providing a platform for national American Indian and Alaska Native health organizations to discuss challenges and opportunities, we help move communities toward health equity.

Health Disparities

Despite our nation’s advances in science, public health and health care, the health status of American Indian/Alaska Native communities continues to lag behind the general population.
