WUWM: First Lady launches Let's Move! in Indian Country

"The office of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative and four federal agencies launched Let’s Move! in Indian Country (LMIC) in Wisconsin Wednesday.

The initiative is described as a way to support and advance the work tribal leaders and community members are doing to improve the health of American Indian and Alaska Native children.

Wisconsin’s Menominee tribe is taking part in the initiative. The tribal chair says the tribe was selected in part because Menominee County, which has similar boundaries to the reservation, came in last in a health ranking among Wisconsin counties."
