What's On UEN-TV

From Badlands to Alcatraz

Deeply moved by the disaster of the horrific Wounded Knee massacre and compelled by the ongoing tragedy of lifestyle-related disease and early death she witnessed when working at Pine Ridge's Indian Health Service Hospital, Dr. Nancy Iverson vowed to help restore the well-being of people living on Pine Ridge. Utilizing San Francisco's unique environment, she developed a program for Pine Ridge residents to experience the Bay Area and immerse themselves in healthy nutrition practices, community activities, physical challenges, and- literally - in the icy waters of the San Francisco Bay! In recognition of the spiritual and cultural significance of Alcatraz for American Indians, the week culminates with the Alcatraz swim.
