How Unique Partnerships Are Transforming Indian Country

Stephanie Tama-Sweet
Senior Foundation Relations Advisor – Advocacy
American Heart Association

There is a growing movement to improve the health of Native American communities, requiring new relationships and ways of working together. In the summer of 2015, the American Heart Association (AHA) and the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community (SMSC) began a partnership focused on improving the health of Indigenous Americans. The SMSC had recently launched its Seeds of Native Health campaign to improve Native nutrition and the AHA had commissioned “Feeding Ourselves,” a groundbreaking report on health disparities within Native communities.
