* (Greeting in Native Language)/Translation in English * My name is Carla Lott and I am a Native American veteran living in Washington, DC. * I am the Director of Congressional Relations at the National Council of Urban Indian Health, a non-partisan organization that advances the needs of Native Americans in 22 states across the country. * The US Census reports that 78% of American Indians and Alaska Natives live in urban areas. * Our Native communities across the nation are in a long-term health crisis. * Unfortunately, urban Natives can suffer due to isolation from Tribal lands and cultural identity, lack of adequate mental health care, substance misuse and poverty. * We represent the 41 Urban Indian Organizations funded by IHS that are working to address these challenges every day. * A donation to NCUIH will support our work to ensure Native Americans in urban settings have the healthcare and resources to be healthy. * Thank you.
