Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health & Illness

NV_LOGO_STACKED

The National Library of Medicine’s (NLM’s) traveling exhibit, “Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness,” is coming to the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library at the University of Utah September 1 through November 8, 2015.

Honoring the Native tradition of oral history, NLM gathered a multitude of healing voices from across the country so that you can hear people’s stories in their own words. Healers, elders and other key figures describe how epidemics, loss of land, loss of lives, and the inhibition of culture in the 19th and 20th centuries affect the health of Native individuals and communities today. “Native Voices” presents an inspiring story of endurance, resilience, and self-determination.

The Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library is located at 10 North 1900 East, Salt Lake City, UT 84112.

RSVP for the event here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1609385582662521/

This exhibit is hosted and sponsored by the Spencer S. Eccles Health Sciences Library, University of Utah.  Special appreciation to the Office of the Associate Vice President for Health Equity and Inclusion, University of Utah Health Sciences and the American Indian Resource Center, University of Utah for guidance and support in planning and publicizing the events for this exhibit.
