The Barrier of Fear: An Ethnographic Interview About Native American Health Disparities


Dawson S Brown

Winter 2007 - Volume 11 Number 1

https://doi.org/10.7812/TPP/06-101

Interview

Jane Doe is a 57-year-old member of the Blackfeet Indian Nation, living in Montana. Native Americans are a significant entity in Montana, a state that otherwise lacks much in the way of ethnic diversity. Having grown up in Montana myself, I thought it might be interesting to learn about the health and health practices of the Blackfeet. Though I had never met Ms Doe before our interview, I knew of her background through some of her coworkers. As I understood it before contacting her, she is very involved in the traditional practices of her people, perhaps even acting as the keeper of the "medicine bundle." She agreed to meet with me at her office on December 21, 2004.
