Our Approach

Our work is grounded in our Redbud Wellness Model. This model is based on Native health perspectives, evidence based research, and our team’s lived experience as Native people.

our collaborations have included museums, cultural centers, tribal governments, universities, K-12 educators, non profits, school districts, and more. Our programs, and resources have reached thousands of Native and non Native community members, spanning fields and Tribes.

Why Our Work is Needed

Native erasure contributes to the lack of resources and massive inequities Native peoples of this country face every day. The erasure of Native people has resulted in almost 100% of Native youth feeling invisible in their classrooms, a factor directly linked to the devastating rate in which we are losing Native youth to death by suicide.

By leveraging both native and non-native strategies of supporting, empowering, and improving Native visibility, we can build healthier communities for everyone.  

 

How We Help

We help non-Native organizations access new audiences, develop cultural competency, and build new alliances. We help Native peoples increase Tribal visibility, sovereignty, economic outlook, and find new ways to preserve and strengthen cultural ties. The evidence based strategies we employ have the potential to improve health and wellness for all peoples. 

The Redbud Model.
