Smith Hall, Albany Quadrangle
The Discovering Our Story Project is a culturally-tailored multi-media health and wellness curriculum based upon the foundation of traditional Native American stories. This accredited training is designed to prepare therapists, counselors, and educators to use the curriculum in therapeutic and classroom settings.
The Discovering Our Story Project was produced by Wisdom of the Elders, Inc., to resolve five outcomes. One increases the skills of therapists serving Native American clients and four relate directly to mental health, addictions, domestic violence, and diabetes issues that recent research has revealed as co-occurring within our local Native community.
This project was developed so Native Americans can improve and maintain their mental health, overcome cycles of addiction and domestic violence, and successfully manage Type 2 Diabetes. Funded through United Way, project partners include Wisdom of the Elders, Inc., the Indigenous Ways of Knowing Program at Lewis & Clark, Native American Rehabilitation Association (NARA Northwest), the Cowlitz Tribe, National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA), Northwest Indian Storytellers Association (NISA), Westview High School’s ESL Program, and Roger Burt, Vocational Rehabilitation Consultant.
