The Mission of United Natives is to unite and advance local to global Indigenous communities in leadership, mentorship, culture, health, education and civic engagement
The Vision of United Natives is to heal our communities to thrive for future generations.
In 2010, while working on her doctoral dissertation in Public Health, Dr. Crystal Lee (of the Dine/Navajo tribe) launched United Natives, an online mentoring program designed specifically for Native American college students. Aimed at uniting career with culture, this program pairs undergraduates with Native faculty or working professionals who help them resolve academic, social, and personal issues that may be interfering with their self- development and education. Originally started with nothing more than the money in her pocket, this project has grown and now offers mentees opportunities to participate in meaningful civic engagement, social action, leadership, and cultural awareness activities. Plans to expand the program to all school-aged youth are currently being assessed.
We provide public health supplies to Native American tribes in Arizona. We conduct mental/behavioral health services for Native Americans.
We provide mentorship to Native American youth, including undergraduate and graduate students.
We provide opportunities for Native youth to engage in civic engagement, leadership and cultural activities.
Our community is full of people who want to help. We work to help the people providing services with the people who need them.
