In this chapter of the Anthology, Paul Brodeur, a veteran writer for The New Yorker and a frequent contributor to the Anthology series, examines these two programs. The first, Improving the Health of Native Americans, allowed grantees to develop projects addressing any type of health problem they chose. The second, Healthy Nations, focused on substance abuse. Both programs gave tribes and Indian organizations wide latitude in developing strategies consistent with their own values.
