Taking Action: Art & Aboriginal Youth Leadership for HIV Prevention

“I just want others like me to know that they are not alone. I walk with them and that everything will be okay in the end, and if not I will wait for you there behind the dark water.” – Michael 

This is only one of many amazing videos that you can view HERE. I thought to share this video and link to others because I wanted to share this project with you all. I was asked to transcribed for this project last summer and since then, I have learned plenty about Indigenous youth, Indigenous youth leadership, HIV prevention and how resilient Indigenous young people can be. I am very grateful for this opportunity to work on this project (Ps. Thank you NYSHN!).

A little more about this project, and as taken directly from the site, “Taking Action 2 is about Indigenous youth leaders building capacity and mobilizing action through digital stories and short movies. 17 youth leaders have created a digital story or short movie on their different journeys to activism in relation to HIV/AIDS. Click on the videos to view their stories.”
