Diabetes: Notes from Indian Country
In 1993, the U.S. Public Health/Indian Health Service reported that 40% of all persons, 40 years and older, residing on American Indian reservations are diabetic. This video visits the Winnebago Indian Reservation in Nebraska, the Rosebud Sioux Tribe and the Porcupine Lakota community in South Dakota, to present community solutions to this health crisis. Featured: Lorelei DeCora, a Winnebago public health nurse presenting one of the most intelligent arguments for a culturally-based approach to the treatment and prevention of diabetes among Native Americans.
Reviews
"Without education and treatment, this condition rivals "third world" afflictions. Beverly Singer's DIABETES: NOTES FROM INDIAN COUNTRY is an insiders' look through Indian-eyes at the epidemic called diabetes." - Chris Eyre, Director, SMOKE SIGNALS
