Native Heritage

Heritage and health go together. Without one, you cannot have the other. Always refer first to the rich array of heritage resources available from a child's own Tribe and the 9 strong Tribal Nations in Oregon. Below are additional examples of cultural and heritage links to support Native children & families in your care. Please also reference our Adoptee & Foster Native Voices, ICWA/ORICWA, Jingle Dance & Powwows, Native Health & Wellbeing, Parenting Native Children, and Tribal Library Collection pages for more Tribal-specific resources.
