What you will learn:

Most people know Indigenous communities for their health disparities. In truth, Indigenous worldviews and lifestyle practices have much to teach the world about how to live a healthy, balanced, spiritually fulfilled life. In this course, Chelsey Luger co-founder of Well For Culture, an educational media outlet on Indigenous wellness, will teach the audience an Indigenous perspective on living well through an original model called The Seven Circles of Wellness. She will also reintroduce the audience to Indigenous communities in a way that they likely haven't seen -- one that is strength based, not deficit based. The audience will walk away understanding that colonialism didn't only impact Native peoples -- it impacted the land, resources, and food systems that all Americans are dependent upon, which means that a return to Indigenous health is not only critical for Native communities, it is critical for all.

About the instructor:

Chelsey Luger is a writer and wellness advocate, originally from the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. She was born and raised in North Dakota, and is now based in Arizona, where she runs an Indigenous wellness media platform called Well For Culture alongside her husband, Thosh. Their wellness work is rooted in Indigenous knowledge and focuses on reclaiming wellbeing in Native American communities. They seek to change the mainstream narrative on Indigenous health, focusing not on recent health disparities, but rather on the strong tradition of health that their people have carried on for thousands of years. Chelsey and Thosh are writing a book on an Indigenous approach to living a balanced life. The Seven Circles: Indigenous Teachings for Living Well will be published in 2022 by HarperOne, an imprint of HarperCollins.
