Monday, March 2, 2015 – Strong Natives, Strong Muscles
There are many ways to be a strong Native American. One is to have muscles that can lift a 200-pound bar bell and hold a plank position for two minutes. Today we talk about muscles and physical strength. We will learn what’s best for our muscles, what foods fuel them and which routines and workouts are best for certain body types. Guests include: LaRita Lakotonen-Ward (Alutiiq), professional figure competitor and health coach with Tru-Life Fitness and Anthony Thosh Collins (Akimel O’Odham/Wah-Zah-Zhi/Haudenosaunee) board member of the Native Wellness Institute.

Wednesday, March 4, 2015 – Native Women And HIV/AIDS
Native American women are victims of sexual assault at higher rates than other women in the country. Does that puts them at risk for being infected with HIV? Today we talk about the current rates of HIV infection among Native women and efforts to prevent future infections. When Native women are dealing with HIV and AIDS, how does that impact our communities?

Thursday, March 5, 2015 – In Moderation
Have you ever gone online to look up something and then realized three hours later that you were still surfing? What about when your plan to eat one cookie turns into half the bag? We all know that some foods, screen time and even alcohol should be consumed in moderation. In fact it seems the mantra of weight loss industry is “do it in moderation.” But what exactly does moderation mean? These days, it’s easy to get too much of just about anything. Do you struggle to balance healthy choices and indulgences? Does your tribe have a traditional teaching that promotes living a balanced life? Have you found the key to living in moderation?

Friday, March 6, 2015 – Time
It’s that time again to “spring ahead” and set our clocks one hour forward. Do you dread the time change each year? Do you know why we use daylight saving time? Does your tribe follow daylight saving time? Time can mean many things. Are you the kind of person who is always on time? Or do you show up for things when you’re ready? What do your traditional teachings in your tribe tell you about time?
