Janelle Palacios, RN, CNM, PhD Heads/Tails-Silenced Warriors and Baby Daddies: Young Fatherhood Among Native American Men
This targeted presentation will provide a dialogue on the dual roles Native American young fathers encounter in both their local and global communities. Ten Native American men between the ages of 16-21 living on a reservation were interviewed on their experiences of being young fathers. Online social identities were examined along with observation of fathering activities.
