The Rev. Harold EagleBull writes, “First of all I’d like to thank you for your role in making the delivery ( Don Grant) a reality and One Nation’s generosity in reaching out to my people in Wounded Knee.

stats

Approximately 1.5 million Native Americans and Alaskan Natives live on designated reservations in the United States today. All but a few of these reservations are plagued with poverty, unemployment, homelessness, lack of medical care, and insufficient educational resources. Many experience historical trauma, discrimination and feelings of hopelessness. There is pervasive hunger. Some children’s only meals are those served while in school.

Suicide

Suicide rates are more than double, and Native teens experience the highest rate of suicide of any population group in the United States via Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute.

Suicide is the second leading cause of death—and 2.5 times the national rate—for American Indian/American Native youth in the 15-24 age group.

Diabetes

Graduation Rate

The national graduation rate for American Indian high school students was 49.3 percent for the 2003-2004 school year, compared with 76.2 percent for white students via Center for Native American Youth at the Aspen Institute.
