Cole Allick joins us today to talk about tribal healthcare in the United States, how to pursue Indigenous sovereignty in health systems, and changing narratives about Indigenous life and history. He shares about the I-T-U (Indian Health Service, Tribally-run, and urban) system of healthcare delivery, Indigenous renaissance, underfunding and creativity in Indigenous healthcare systems, the implications of Tribal enrollment, North Dakota, Indigenous wisdom as a 'radical act' instead of as a 'radical Other,' the importance of Indigenous spaces, and democratically designing clinical spaces with Elders in mind.
