“Indigenous Pink Month is a national breast cancer awareness campaign for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) people. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer and second leading cause of cancer death for AI/AN women. When it comes to detecting breast cancer, timing matters. Regular screenings can help find breast cancer in its early stages when it is easier to treat.
The goal of Indigenous Pink Month is to educate all Native people on the importance of early detection, and remind everyone to keep up to date on their breast cancer screenings. The AMERICAN INDIAN CANCER FOUNDATION encourages both men and women of all ages to take part in the activities listed below throughout the month of October.

We invite you to celebrate Indigenous Pink Day with us on Thursday, October 17th. This national event happens digitally, and allows you participate from wherever you are!”
Post a picture of yourself or your group in pink on the Indigenous pink day page at https://www.facebook.com/events/2651812611508136/ and also post your picture on the Shoshone Bannock Tribal Health and Human Services page at https://www.facebook.com/Shoshone-Bannock-Tribal-Health-and-Human-Services-422216637866831/

Update from I.H.S. Dental Department. The dental clinic will be on limited operations until Wednesday, September 25 as we wait for new suction pumps to be installed. We will be able to complete exams, place temporary fillings, and make referrals for those who would like to be seen as walk in emergencies. We will resume services that require suction such as fillings, cleanings, and removing teeth once the new pumps are installed. Additionally, we will have another period of 2-3 weeks sometime during the next two months where the clinic will be closed for renovation. Once we have those dates, we will announce them. We apologize for any inconvenience. CDR Lori Snidow, DDS, Chief Dental Officer.

We invite people to follow Not-tsoo Gah-nee Indian Health Center on facebook @Fort Hall Indian Health Service for up to date clinic information.
My father, Bruce L Cutler is an enlisted tribal member who has spent his entire life practicing and adhering to tribal traditions. He is in the hospital in Pocatello and according to his beliefs a “healer” can help him. It does not matter what I believe, but I know without any doubt that his beliefs if upheld will be of great benefit so his beliefs MUST be upheld to the best of my ability.I have searched everywhere and I can not find helpful information. I am leaving Denver Colorado right now for the doctor at portneuf medical center expressed to my grandmother that he is not well. They placed him on a ventilator but if he doesn’t take to it he will not last longer than 2 days. Maybe it is his time to move on even if that is the case it must be done in the tradition of his beliefs. I hope I am making sense I am slightly lacking in all tribal ways and lingo, but my father is not. I am not trying to get anyone in trouble or asking for a miracle. I love my father he is a good man and I respect his beliefs. Is there anyone that can visit him at the hospital and say a simple prayer or heal him or help him die well or something? I’m begging you to ask anyone or everyone that might help to please help.
Counseling and Family Services - the Tribes outpatient Mental Health Progam is available to help people that are struggling with stress, anxiety and depression.
