About the Wassaja Center
The Wassaja Carlos Montezuma Center for Native American Health is an Indigenous-led framework to empower and heal Indigenous families using a culturally appropriate holistic approach. Indigenous knowledge and data will be protected through law and policy. We envision engagement and understanding between European Centric and Indigenous systems to advance health and social justice outcomes for Indigenous peoples.
Formerly known as the Native American Research and Training Center (NARTC), the Wassaja Carlos Montezuma Center for Native American Health was established in 1983 by the University of Arizona Board of Regents to serve as a resource in health-related research and training for Native American communities nationwide. The Wassaja Center is housed in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at the College of Medicine - Tucson at the University of Arizona.
