UNITY Wellness Warriors Indigenous Food Tasting a Success
In April, UNITY celebrated its 42nd birthday with an open house and an Indigenous food tasting. Supporting the mission of UNITY’s Wellness Warriors initiative, which encourages Native youth to explore health lifestyles of their ancestor and cultural teachings, UNITY invited youth to share a traditional dish from their community. Various dishes were brought representing cultures and tribes from the Southwest, Pacific Northwest and the Great Plains.
The open house included a cultural presentation from a Hopi dance group, as well as raffle for gifts that included 2 free conference registrations to the 2018 National UNITY Conference in San Diego this summer. UNITY recently moved from its downtown Mesa location to the National Center for American Indian Enterprise Development’s building.
