Let's Move! in Indian Country (LMIC) seeks to improve the health of American Indian and Alaska Native children, who are affected by childhood obesity at some of the highest rates in the country. Tribal governments, Urban Indian Centers, private businesses, youth leaders, and the non-profit sector are each asked to play a key role by working together to raise the next generation of healthy Native children.
LMIC seeks to acknowledge and advance the work that Tribal leadership and community members are already doing to improve the health of Native youth.

LMIC celebrated its third anniversary at the Pueblo of Zuni in New Mexico. The celebration included the opening of the Zuni Youth Enrichment Project summer camp, a lunch at the Zuni Comprehensive Community Health Center, and youth soccer activities.
The primary goal of the two day conference was to bring together both cohorts of grantees (Capacity Building and Promising Program) as well as health experts and partners of the NB3 Foundation from across Indian country into a safe and trusting environment to collectively explore how to better utilize our communities' inherent knowledge, assets, and values to advance Native health.
