This project covers the historical development of health problems in the Native American community and it covers the development of Indian Health Service and the limitations of this institution. A thorough investigation of historical events will pinpoint pivotal occurrences that have had an impact on the Native American population today. Lastly, this project examines how the practices of Indian Health Service align with or divert from the cultural practices of the communities it serves. This section addresses the ways in which community healing is necessary and the ways in which this could be accomplished.
