Body and Soul Sovereignty, United
We Support Self-Advocacy in the Health of Indigenous Women
Our mission was developed in response to the sudden loss of a significant healthcare system serving American Indian/Alaska Native (AIAN) women in urban Arizona affecting local and regional Tribal communities. It was the main organizational hub in a system of healthcare agencies that provided culturally-sensitive women's health and maternity services to Native women. It was suddenly closed toward the latter part of 2020, without timely notice and without adequate direction for the women.
Self-Determination begins in the womb – it is a call for women to exercise, “Sovereignty over their own bodies.”
