Transcript of Native Americans
There are roughly 5.2 million American Indians and Alaska Natives living in the United States, making up 1.7% of the U.S. population.
565 are currently recognized tribes plus an unknown number of unrecognized tribes.
In the 2010 U.S. Census, tribal groupings with 100,000 or more responses were: Cherokee, Navajo, Choctaw, Mexican American Indian, Chippewa, Sioux, Apache, and Blackfeet.
Leading causes of death include:
1. Heart Disease
3. Unintentional Injuries
5. Chronic liver disease and Cirrohosis
By: Monique Reynolds and Elaine Rodriguez
Many sub-categories of heart disease.
In 2009, Cardiovascular Heart Disease resulted in 1,813 deaths among American Indians or Alaska Natives.
Coronary Heart Disease is most common throughout Native American communities.
Greatest source of plaque build-up in the arteries is high intake of saturated fats and smoking cigarettes.
LIVE OFF THE LAND!
The diet of Native American Tribes is dependent upon location.
Other plant staples include: corn, peppers, squash, various types of berries, herbs, and potatoes.
BEAR GREASE DELICACY
Consumption of fat and creation of sacrifice alter with the bones.

“The offering of the sacred peace
pipe has been the method of
communicating by the Indian
people with all other peoples and
the Great Spirit since ancient
times. It symbolizes the sacred
relationships of the brotherhood
of all mankind and consecrates
mankind’s nearness to the Great
Spirit, making possible the
tranquility necessary for peace
and harmony among them.”
Abbott Sekaquaptewa, Former Chairman,
Hopi Tribe located in Northeastern Arizona
Limited Access to Healthcare
Indian Health Services (IHS) is underfunded.
Only 22% of Native Americans live on reservations
Lower employment rates leads to lower health coverage by an employer. (36% compared to 62% of overall non-elderly population in the U.S.A)
How will the Affordable Care Act help Native Americans have more access to healthcare?
1. You may continue to use IHS, tribal, and/or urban Indian health programs,
2. Enroll in a qualified health plan (QHP) through the Marketplace, and/or
3. Access coverage through Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children's Health Insurance Program.
Tobacco products sold on reservations are not subject to state and local taxes.
Some Native teens rebel by using tobacco habitually rather than reserving it for ceremonial use only.
Second Hand Smoke
As estimated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, nearly 3,000 deaths occur annually due second-hand smoke.
Contrary to public perception, smoking-caused heart disease actually results in more deaths per year than smoking-caused lung cancer.
Carbon monoxide reduces flow of oxygen to the heart.
Nicotine increases heart rate and blood pressure that leads to long-term wear and tear on the cardiovascular system.
Role of the Healthcare Team
Be mindful of the patient's specific tribe, as well as whether or not they actively practice their traditions.
KEEP IN MIND
Use eye contact judiciously
Involve the extended family in treatment plan.
Show special respect to the elderly.
Accomodate tribal healing
Respect the Medicine Man's patient diagnosis
Suggest healthy alternatives to traditional meals.
Do not assume all tribes use tobacco for spiritual ceremonies.
Minimize tobacco use.
Within 5 to 15 years an ex-smoker’s risk of developing heart disease and or stroke is just as prevalent as a non-smoker.
