About

A Peer-Led Project to reduce stigma, build community and create cultural safety

Through the lived experiences and voices of eight Indigenous people living with HIV, this poetic short documentary combines storytelling and the healing power of Indigenous culture to reflect on the realities of stigma and discrimination for Indigenous people.

Offering inspiration and empathy, the film offers up hope that understanding and compassion will decrease experiences of HIV stigma and discrimination. Most importantly, it will be a way to connect those who made it and those who will watch it, to community, and to culture.
