Native Speakers' Series

Native Speakers' Series

In honor of National Native Heritage Month, the National Indian Health Board is proud to host a Native Speakers’ Series.  This series, comprised of one new presentation each week of the month, features renowned American Indian / Alaska Native community members speaking on different aspects of their work or life.  Each presentation provides a glimpse into what makes these individuals amazing athletes, chefs, researchers, facilitators, or mobilizers – and what earns each of them the mantle of leader and change agent.  They will be speaking about their personal and professional experiences, how they are honoring their Native heritage and culture, and how they are working every day to make this world and their communities stronger and healthier.  Thank you to Bonnie Duran, Billy Mills, Theda New Breast, Sean Sherman and Dolores Subia Bigfoot for participating in this series and for sharing their wisdom with us.
