American Cancer Society to release all-Native vignette
Charlotte Hofer: Roberta, can you tell me about this new vignette being produced by the ACS and starring Native women? Why a vignette?
Roberta Cahill: The vignette is a way to explain the importance of breast cancer screening to Native women. This is a film for Native women, predominantly by Native women. The spokespersons in the film, many of the scriptwriters-–even the producer--are all Native. It is important to the ACS to incorporate cultural values and beliefs into the film--by using storytelling and by having American Indians involved in every aspect of the film.
