Voices for Native Community Wellness
Presented by: Healthy Native Communities Partnership, Inc. (HNCP)
Native communities have a long tradition of using stories to make sense of the world, to inspire community change, to pass on teachings and wisdom, and to help connect the past and the future. Digital storytelling is a low-cost, powerful and compelling way to promote social change and action by sharing first-person narratives combined with digital media. Digital storytelling gives Native people a chance to tell their own stories. They can give the message, not just be the audience or receivers of media messages. Healthy Native Communities Partnership, Inc. supports Native community voices for wellness through capacity building in Digital Storytelling.
