Conquering Diebetes in the 21st Century
A Feature Film Documentary

Because of your interest in issues facing Native Americans, we are seeking your support on a project that addresses one of the most critical heath issues of our time.

There are currently 23.6 million people in the United States, or 8% of the population, who have diabetes. American Indians are more than twice as likely to develop Type 2 diabetes as non-Hispanic Whites of similar ages. Once considered an elders’ disease associated with adults aged 35 or older, children as young as 4 years of age have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, and it is estimated that more than 60% of Native Americans will be diagnosed in their lifetime. The direct and indirect costs of this epidemic exceed $170 billion annually, and the emotional and physiological impact on Native communities is staggering; and simply unacceptable. Complications from Type 2 diabetes include blindness, kidney failure, neuropathy and nerve damage resulting in amputation, and heart disease (American Diabetes Association 2007).

Sovereign Nations Preservation Project Inc., a non-profit, 501c3 company, is producing a documentary film entitled, Conquering Diabetes in the 21st Century, focusing on the historical roots and specific struggle of the Native American community with this disease. The film will be produced by the award winning, Native American-owned Rich-Heape Films, and will provide an accurate and balanced portrayal of this story from the Native prospective. The film documents and exposes the government’s role in the diabetes epidemic in Native America communities, beginning with federal agricultural programs aimed at American Indian reservations and communities.

A sharp historical focus is given to the federal Commodity Credit Corporation Act of 1933, which was created to subsidize the nation’s farmers and ranchers during the Great Depression. The Act, also known as “food dumping,” lies at the heart of federal policies that continue to yield devastating health consequences in Native American communities. Current efforts in American Indian communities to inform and educate on risk factors, prevention and treatment will be examined, and policy recommendations and changes will be considered. Viewers will be reminded that healthcare for Native Americans is not a benefit, it’s the law.

This feature length documentary, produced in high definition, is accompanied by a teachers’ study guide and discussion companion. Scheduled for completion in winter 2009, Rich-Heape Films anticipates a premier screening at the Sundance Film Festival in February 2010. The film will then be provided at little or no cost to tribal schools, health clinics, youth groups and community libraries.
