Glamor magazines and Hollywood movies help drive a desire to achieve a certain look: six-pack abs, flawless skin and cellulite-free thighs are often the popular image of the perfect body.

We’ll hear from the founders of Well for Culture and their view that “strong tribal Nations are built by strong individuals.” They’ll talk about some dietary challenges Native Americans face, and the movement to relate Native culture to healthy living.
