The Numbers

Why are we working to improve Native American health?
Native Americans have…

American Indian (AI) and Alaska Native (AN) children have approximately twice the levels of food insecurity, obesity, and Type II diabetes

Approximately 24 percent of American Indians in the United States live below the poverty line

Current estimates suggest that overweight and obesity affects one-third to one-half of AI/AN children

Many reservations have significant food deserts, which are defined as low-income communities without ready access to healthy and affordable food

There are over 650 tribes in North America

New Solutions for Health

The Sheeva V Foundation has partnered with Symbiotic Aquaponic, LLC of Talihina, OK to make aquaponics more accessible in Indian Country. The goal is to help local food production while promoting education, empowerment, natural resource conservation, and self determination among Native populations.  We will assist in raising funds for tribal aquaponic projects, project planning, aquaponic system construction, and aquaponic  education and training to ensure project success.
