Native Americans experience the worst health disparities in the U.S. related to wealth, power, and resource inequalities, which have existed since colonization. Minnesota Native Americans’ social and health outcomes rank below any other population in the state with high rates of heart disease, cancer, alcohol-induced illnesses, liver and kidney disease, mental illness, and depression. The Wisdom Wellness Center (WWC) recognizes the interlocking systems displayed in the Multicultural Wellness Wheel (MWW) and integrates culturally appropriate intervention strategies. Application of informal and formal systems support Native American Elders while being mindful of personal, physical, psychosocial, financial, spiritual, environmental, and cultural needs.
