  • Indigenous Health Leadership Institute Brings New Way of Learning to Health Professions Students from Across the US

    When students and professionals in the health fields attend an institute, PowerPoint presentations are to be expected. But this past weekend, at the Indigenous Health Leadership Institute, participants got a different experience. It was a PowerPoint-free institute, where the entire three days were spent with community leaders in the Kewa Pueblo and Tohajiilee community on the Navajo Nation in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

    The Native Health Initiative purposely used the word “indigenous” for the institute, hoping to deconstruct and decolonize the notion that Indigenous communities and traditions from north of the border are distinct from those south of the border.  

    Did you attend this institute? We'd love to hear from you about your experience!
