Boyna Bear teaches holistic wellness in Native communities. “For the last 10 years, I’ve been devoted to working with Native American communities using soccer as a vehicle to talk about holistic wellness. When I coach, that’s what I hope to cultivate. Not only that we’re winning games, but we’re developing healthy relationships,” Boyna shares. Healthy relationships with physical activity are important for overall health.
