Changing Winds: Public Health and Indian Country is an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of American Indians and Alaska Natives to public health. Aligning good health and wellness with the traditional ways of knowing is at the forefront of culture, language, and practices across American Indian and Alaska Native communities—both rural and urban.
This exhibition demonstrates how tribal nations are addressing modern day challenges for good health and wellness while using traditional knowledge and practices for public health. Its stories provide a glimpse into the diverse cultures and continuing challenges affecting tribal communities across the U.S.
Also on view is The Roots of Wisdom: Native Knowledge. Shared Science., organized by the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. From restoring ecosystems to revitalizing cultural practices, Roots of Wisdom provides examples of how traditional knowledge and Western science together create complementary solutions to contemporary concerns.
