Preventing and Treating
Diabetes Type 2

Our work emphasizes the prevention and treatment of diabetes by restoring health with nutrient-dense, authentic traditional foods and natural medicines that reflect the best of ancient wisdom and modern science.

We recognize recovery from historical trauma, PTSD, stress, sedentism and food insecurity as among the essential steps towards health and self-care.

We have been working with individuals, families, tribal communities and health agencies for over 40 years to incorporate these methods for successful results.
