Podcast: "Honoring Culture, Language, and Family: Stories from the Navajo Nation" (30 min)

 

The Networks of Opportunity for Child Wellbeing (NOW) is excited to share the fifth episode of In the Arena with NOW, a podcast series that lifts up the voices of community leaders who are “in the arena” -- in classrooms, playgrounds, Congressional halls, hospitals, and neighborhood streets -- working to make sure that all children and families can live healthy, thriving lives. 

In our fifth episode, Honoring Culture, Language, and Family: Stories from the Navajo Nation, we speak with members of McKinley County Early Childhood Coalition (MCECC) about the transformative efforts they are leading to promote healthy, prosperous, and empowered Native children and families. Based in Navajo Nation, New Mexico, MCECC seeks to eliminate health disparities and improve the wellbeing of American Indians and Alaska Natives in their community.
