Wellness Warrior Posters Now Available!
UNITY Wellness Warriors are proud to reveal our first series of posters featuring native youth across the country who embody cultural wellness in their everyday lives. These powerful images help reshape the way modern media views native youth leaders in contemporary settings. The poster series will showcase how native youth utilize their cultural teachings to help them succeed in all aspects of their lives; whether it be on the basketball court, in ceremonial dances, or even law school or starting their own business. A Wellness Warrior is someone who actively practices a holistic approach to living a healthy balanced life. Every 6 months UNITY will choose 4-6 youth who embody these traditional values and release the new series of posters at the Midyear and National Conferences.
“I Am A Wellness Warrior”- We want UNITY Youth Councils across the country to help share these posters in local gathering places to help empower our people to strive for healthier communities. Whether you want to organize a community service project, represent UNITY Wellness Warriors at a gathering, or help raise awareness about food sovereignty, language preservation, or healthy habits, You too can be a Wellness Warrior! Take the Challenge today to join the National Campaign. Email UNITY to nominate one of your youth leaders who you feel lives the life of a Wellness Warrior so we can feature them in the upcoming series.
