Job is located on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation.The Fort Peck Tribes have taken the lead to promote the health of their people. In 2003, we created the Health Promotion Disease Prevention (HP/DP) Wellness Program, a tribally operated, locally controlled initiative whose mission is to restore the traditional values of the Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes and help our communities return to a healthier lifestyle. The program increases access to mental, physical, and spiritual health resources by focusing on the health of our communities and the prevention of disease and illness. Each initiative supported through the Wellness Program looks to our past for the values and traditions that will provide a healthy lifestyle and place to live in the present.
For many years, outside entities have developed health related programs and services within our communities that have proved ineffective and unsustainable. The HP/DP Wellness Program originated from within the community and every aspect of the program from the leadership, to the funding sources, to the methods employed, support the sovereignty and inherent dignity of our people. This program is the product of the Fort Peck Tribes taking the initiative to solve our own health problems with our own ingenuity and resources while utilizing our unique structures for sovereign tribal governance. The program capitalizes on the ability of the tribe to provide its own health services, independent of the Indian Health Services and capture reimbursement from Medicaid, which allows the program to provide services free of charge to tribal members regardless of insurance status.
