«A’jooba and Nalyeeh- two Navajo words used to describe Loving service», says the Native Health Initiative, " the first means 'to have mercy, no matter what' and the second means 'to give back, what you owe.'

We proudly welcome our community partner, Native Health Inititative back for our 4th annual Indigenous Peoples' Day at the Rail Yards Market!
More about NHI:
NHI was created in 2004, where several respected Tribal health leaders, health lay workers, faith-based leaders and health profession students sat down to discuss how to build community partnership. In 2005, NHI began work as a student organization. Now in its 11th year, NHI is a non-profit partnership that addresses health inquities through Loving Service (a human-to-human element of wanting to serve others, volunteerism).

NHI is unique because…
We work with the rural and urban American Indian community members, organizations, programs in the U.S. that is run by the Tribes working with health professions students.
>Health projects are created by and run by Tribal communities and their leaders
>95% funded by loving service, and only 5% by monetary donations

Why do we choose loving service: 1) It is a return to an Indigenous currency, one where money is not central, but instead one's sincerity and goodness toward others is most valued. 2) It inspires a human-to-human element to our work, a communal ethic that minimizes the ego and maximizes all of the qualities we hope to amplify in our partnership (caring for one another, kindness, honesty, trust, ) 3) It builds on the strength of Indigenous communities, and helps to educate our volunteers, our partner organizations, and academic and governmental institutions about this aspect of these communities.
