Developing Strong Partnerships to preserve Tribal Interests
Made up of all forty-three federally recognized tribes in Oregon, Washington, and Idaho, NPAIHB advocates tribal sovereignty through government-to-government relations. We develop relationships with state offices and other agencies dealing with health matters to assure that tribal interests are taken into account as health policy is formulated.
The Northwest tribes have faced difficult questions and issues, and have consistently put health improvement above all else. We have a bright future and a great team to continue our work.–Joe Finkbonner (Lummi), Executive Director
