The Native Breastfeeding Coalition of Wisconsin was founded by Breastfeeding: The Traditional Way, a program of Great Lakes Inter-Tribal Council and proudly funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
The goal of Breastfeeding: The Traditional Way is to improve the length of time a mother's breastfeeds her baby. Improving these duration rates can minimize the health disparities among Tribal people.

The Mission of the Native Breastfeeding Coalition of Wisconsin is to strengthen and encourage the traditional practice of breastfeeding to improve the lives of women, babies, and families, for generations to come.
The vision is that Native Communities support breastmilk as the first food to nourish our mind, body, and spirit.
