This video highlights how the Cook Inlet Tribal Council Ch’anik’en Home Visiting Program honors and integrates cultural traditions and practices into their work. Ch’anik’en family mentors take steps to actively learn each child’s and family’s cultural background with openness, intention, and respect to then respond with flexibility and adaptability.

We extend a special thank you to the Ch’anik’en Home Visiting team and family who are featured in this video: Gail Fitka, Nicole Hunter, Tiara McDougal, Oxcenia Sonju, Jesstella Vasquez and the Stalker Family.
