    Pima Indians: Pathfinders for Health
    Pima US - Southwest
    This cooperative search between the Pima Indians and the NIH began in 1963 when the NIDDK (then called the National Institute of Arthritis, Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases), made a survey of rheumatoid arthritis among the Pimas and the Blackfeet of Montana. They discovered an extremely high rate of diabetes among the Pima Indians. Two years later, the Institute, the Indian Health Service, and the Pima community set out to find some answers to this mystery. They hoped to shed light on an even broader question: Why do Native Americans, Hispanics and other non-white peoples have up to ten times the rate of diabetes as Caucasians?
