Story Telling Builds Compassion!

By Katherine Dodds

Everyone is someone's brother, son, father, sister, mother, auntie, cousin... we are all connected.

This is true for everyone, but even more so in First Nation's communities, where tight knit familes, mean the impact on one person is felt by many. This is why the implications of a positive diagnosis of HIV/AIDS has the potential to ripple out. And it's the love families have for their kin that can save communtiies from the devastating effects of stigma. 

We've had the priviledge of working over many years with Chee Mamuk, and recently did two projects we're really proud of: A book of photographs and stories of people living with the affects of HIV "Honouring our Journey"  and a video about Chee Mamuk's ongoing program "Around The Kitchen Table" which we've also been involved with in the past.

Freida Prince is featured in both the book and the video which can be seen after the page break. We think her story about losing her son is very moving and hope that the video is widely seen where it is needed as tool to build undertanding for those living with HIV, their families and the community. Thank you Frieda! 

Around the Kitchen Table video Created for Chee Mamuk with the First Nations Health Authority - it 'premiered' at their conference in October.
