Indigenous Centered Wilderness Program | Funded by: Navajo Nation
Navajo Nation-Indigenous Centered Wilderness Therapy project was funded by the Navajo Tribe’s Division of Health. In 2010, the Navajo Nation hired me to help create an indigenous-centered wilderness-based program for Native adolescents. We developed a program supported by Native therapists, Traditional Practitioners, Recreation Specialists and support staff. Native scholars and treatment experts aware of indigenous programs internationally, assisted us in creating a program that continues today.
