Urban Indian Health Institute
The mission of Urban Indian Health Institute is to decolonize data, for Indigenous people, by Indigenous people. The UIHI was established in 2000 as a Division of the Seattle Indian Health Board, which is a community health center for urban American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/ANs). The UIHI is one of 12 tribal epidemiology centers (TECs) funded by the Indian Health Service (IHS). While the other 11 TECs work with tribes regionally, the UIHI focuses on the nationwide urban AI/AN population.
