For Adults

We R Native has created a sister site for adults, one-stop-shop for educators and health advocates who want to expand learning opportunities for youth. The site is designed for tribal health educators, teachers, and parents – providing the training and tools needed to access and deliver effective, age-appropriate programs.

We R Native Teachers Guide

Get your students actively involved in their own health and wellbeing! We R Native has created a teachers guide for use with 13-18 year old Native youth. Unit objectives include:

  • Students employ technology thoughtfully to enhance their reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language use.
  • They become proficient in new areas through research and study.
  • They refine and share their knowledge through writing and speaking.
  • They become self-directed learners, effectively seeking out and using resources to assist them, including teachers, peers, and print and digital reference materials.

For Health Advocates

Help Spread the Word! We R Native is a multimedia health resource for Native teens and young adults, developed by the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board. We hope you will use the service to spark youth’s interest in community service, health and wellness, and important issues that affect Native people.
