Native American Children in Michigan
Cournoyer, David
W. K. Kellogg Foundation
Vulnerable children in Michigan face intersecting disparities, with race, class and geographic location often combining to limit access to health, education and economic security. Addressing this reality requires reliable and comprehensive data that can guide thoughtful action within communities and among institutions alike. To this end, the W. K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) has produced this report, which highlights the major programs, trends, challenges and opportunities as they pertain to Native American children. This focus on community-level knowledge is an important part of America Healing, the foundation's strategy to address historical racial and ethnic injustices while erasing disparities for children and families of color. Having long partnered with sovereign tribes to improve the lives of Michigan's youngest citizens, foundation members are proud to lift up this critical data so that it may add to important conversations and decisions made at the local, state, tribal and even national level. With input solicited from the United Tribes of Michigan, the Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan and several tribal leaders and other stakeholders they hope that the information presented herein will help to raise awareness of the unique histories, challenges and opportunities of Native communities. With this understanding, policymakers and practitioners working with young people can collaboratively improve outcomes for Native American children while building a healthier, better educated, prosperous and inclusive Michigan.
