INCLUDES: Vaccinations, deworming, and external parasite protection
2. Human Education
All outreach education will share the concept that Native Nations and our animal kingdoms need to flourish and sustain one another while respecting the natural elements, our youth, and the teachings of our elders. All materials will be developed with the four phases of thinking, planning, doing, and verifying to assist Native populations of all ages that we live together and grow together with our animals. Targeted audiences include head start, elementary, high school, tribal colleges and universities, chapter communities, worksites, businesses, tribal councils, and external partners.
3. Genetic Improvement and Herd Development/Management
To provide avenues to Native livestock and horse owners the opportunity to increase genetic quality and improve herds with herd planning and the purchase of quality sires. Livestock producers will have access to artificial insemination and cool semen insemination, and the producers should request the services. The improvements to livestock and herds will increase the value of livestock.
The economy of the Navajo Nation depends on the quality-assured practices of raising livestock. This work will involve the promotion of good practices in animal husbandry through field demonstration and public education. Livestock producers will gain record-keeping knowledge and the tools to properly identify livestock for increased revenue at auction/sale.
4. Overpopulation Control and the Growth of Humane Communities
Tribal communities will support community initiatives for the spaying and neutering of pets, castration of stallions, mare PZP injections, and the transport of animals off of reservation lands. Humane efforts will encompass the cultural aspects of animal use and function, the safeguarding of medicinal herbs, and the restoration of natural grazing land.
5. Youth Impact Programs
A youth volunteer program, community action initiatives, and an active ARQ staff will move toward the establishment of youth impact programs for communities and their animals. The continual need for youth employment and incentive programs to allow for the younger populations to express their compassion toward animals, nature, and community-driven projects.
