Tohono O’odham: Walking Path to Better Health

Terrol Dew Johnson, is the co-founder of Tohono O'odham Community Action – a nonprofit grass-roots organization that supports traditional farming, healthy foods and tribal culture.  In 1996, he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes – an epidemic among tribal members.   This article describes a 3000 mile healing walk on which he embarked. 


Last week, the National Diabetes Education Program noted that "16 percent of American Indians and Alaska Natives aged 20 and older have diagnosed diabetes, compared to a national average of seven percent.".  


People of all races, take care of yourself!
