Lightbulb Just this week on Native America Calling

World Breast Feeding Week:
According to a 2003 government report, 70% of all infants in the U.S. are breastfed. Researchers and health care providers know the benefits of breastfeeding. It builds up resistance to disease and reduces infant mortality. For the mother, studies show women who breastfeed have a lower risk of breast cancer. Native women tend to breastfeed their children longer than the national average age. This is, World Breastfeeding Week. Its an effort to bring more awareness to the importance of breastfeeding. Guests are Barbara Stoddard, Program Manager/ Honoring the Children, Marinah (Indigenous Northern Mexico Tribes, Pima) Midwife/ Sage Midwifery, and Julianne (Eskimo), Woman Infant Child Counselor/ Resource Center for Parents and Children.

You can probably listen to the program after this week in their archives (Past NAC Programs)
"We who are clay blended by the Master Potter, come from the kiln of Creation in many hues. How can people say one skin is colored, when each has its own coloration? What should it matter that one bowl is dark and the other pale, if each is of good design and serves its purpose well." ~~~Polingaysi Qoyawayma, Hopi~~~
