Study Explores Role of Traditional Parenting Class in Strengthening Native American Families

As a Navajo and Hopi mother who connects new moms to home-visiting services, Daili Lister knows firsthand the vital importance of drawing on Native American child-rearing practices. When she had her first child in Flagstaff, Arizona, she was just a short drive from the small town where she grew up. Relatives passed down a cradleboard and taught her the special blessings and practices that have helped mothers and babies bond for centuries. But for many other Native American families--particularly those living in urban centers like Mesa, Arizona, where Lister now works--there are fewer ways for new parents to learn about traditional tribal practices. Imprint - November 08, 2020 CLICK HERE
