Show Notes

Hosts Amber-Rose and Shermaine discuss the Azhe'é Bidziil (Strong Fathers) Program with LeDaniel Gishie Jr., Nolan Tsinigine and Tiffany Begay from Johns Hopkins- Center for American Indian Health. The program goal is to "increase economic stability of Native fathers and their families, reduce violence in rural Native communities and increase health relationships and co-parenting in Native communities." Ledaniel and Nolan share their experience working program facilitators and the ways they educate and engage with other fathers through this program. Since this podcast addresses health for mothers and children, we must also address the health of our fathers, uncles, and grandfathers who take on an important role in Diné families. Ahéhee'!
