    ‘Native Generations’ Campaign Connects Urban Indians With Infant Care, Native Support

    American Indian and Alaska Native babies are dying at higher rates across the country than babies born to all other races. According to the Office of Minority Health, for every 1,000 American Indian and Alaskan Native live births, as many as 8.7 die before they can celebrate their first birthday. That’s more than 1.6 times the infant mortality rate of non-Hispanic whites.
