It is also true that some of the most polluted areas are those on tribal lands and in low income minority neighborhoods in big cities. Alot needs to happen to change this. Less polluted water could be provided tribal communities by removing dams and restoring wild rivers with their natural eco-systems. Nitrate and chemical contamination are other important issues to be looked at. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.

I agree that we need to work toward overall well-being which is multi-faceted and complicated and does include sense of sense, environment, family and all other components in our life. Holistic approaches and respecting traditional knowledge shuld play a big factor in working to address concerns in tribal communities.

These are very real challenges that we face and we need to pay attention to overall well-being, which includes everything in our environment, our sense of self, family life, and others and respect traditional knowledge while trying to work toward environmental and social justice.

Different place and culture make difficulties approaches. Just one resolve from me, he must be a man : studying and after that working. Year by year he was growing up and understood of our differences and also our neighborhood. My neighbor also to support him to be a man and to care him. Now he has a boy and happy with his wife…..

I am interested in native well being like you, i live in Canada, and i became aware of the very difficult situation, that is a fact of life for aborigional people,that they really do not have a place in our society, a place that recognises them. I have written native stories for children, i know that self esteem is so often the vehicle that carries people forward and that low self esteem is a reason that keeps aborigional people at the back of the Ball park. when we are a society that embraces people from so many cultures,we just arent doing enough to help those who so need a push toward the freedom and life that we all have, i will not look down on a person who deserves every bit the same place that everyone else expects and has.
