The American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office, on behalf of the U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM), is now accepting applications for Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness, a traveling exhibition to U.S. libraries.
Native Voices explores the interconnectedness of wellness, illness and cultural life for Native Americans, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians. Stories drawn from both the past and present examine how health for Native People is tied to community, the land and spirit. Through interviews, Native People describe the impact of epidemics, federal legislation, the loss of land and the inhibition of culture on the health of Native individuals and communities today.
