My Holistic Healthy Way of Life:
Many Native tribes believe human beings experience spiritual growth throughout their lifetime. We can reach understandings, an awarenesses, "llangaqtuq" (Sugpiaq and Yupik), "Qarri" (Inupiaq). As we journey through life, we experience many things including challenges and successes.
Through our learning experiences we come to realize how we are to live a way of life that is good. As we "llangaqtug" we will come to understand we must live life healthy, for ourselves, our family and community. A healthy way of life demonstrates a balance of Knowledge, Physical, Provider, Emotional, Social, and Spiritual wellness.
