“Honoring the tradition of breastfeeding”
In December 2010 Washington’s first Native American Breastfeeding Coalition was founded. The Native American Breastfeeding Coalition of Washington (NABCWA) is a community group of Native women and their allies who believe in the tradition of breastfeeding and that all Native children deserve breastmilk.
Our mission is to:
-Provide culturally appropriate, accurate and up-to-date information on the benefits of breastfeeding.
-Provided culturally appropriate education to help ensure that breastfeeding is successful.
-Provide unconditional support to women on their journey toward being/becoming a breastfeeding woman.
-Help normalize breastfeeding among the Native community in Washington State.
NABCA will be participating in the 2011 Spirit Walk and the 2011 Seafair Powwow. Please look for us there. We can also be contacted via email at firstname.lastname@example.org and on Facebook at “Native American Breastfeeding Coalition of Washington”.
