Don't Get Sick After June: American Indian Healthcare

Declared wards of the state, Native Americans were promised housing, education and healthcare in numerous treaties with the US Government. Like so many other federal promises, these too have not been met. The budget shortfall to the Indian Health Service continues. Add to this generational trauma of subjugation, reservations, boarding schools and alienation, their health and their healthcare is in a critical state. This is the story of the program's inception of our government's obligation to America's first people.

Reviews
"This very impressive film uses the occasion of the inadequacies of Native American healthcare to provide valuable history and offer a searing indictment of federal dealings with Indian peoples. As the film reminds us, Indian healthcare is not a welfare system but a pre-paid health care system offered in exchange for Indian cession of land. DON'T GET SICK AFTER JUNE is a tremendous and impassioned study of Indian health and U.S./Indian history. It is a very professional production, full of valuable information and authentic Native voices. Suitable for high school and college courses in cultural anthropology, anthropology of healthcare/medical anthropology, anthropology of threatened peoples, colonial and post-colonial studies, and Native American studies, as well as general audiences."
- Jack David Eller, Anthropology Review Database
