Aboriginals standing together

The Healthy Aborigianl Network also sent me a comic called STANDING TOGETHER. This standalone issue features six short stories by Native writers and artists on health-related issues: drug use, diabetes, body image, suicide, mental health, and accountability for one's actions. It includes lots of phone numbers of health contacts for more information.

The stories are more like quirky public service announcements than true fiction. They're about as primitive as the work you might find in any indie or amateur comix. But it's good to see young Native talents stretch their wings and fly.

I don't know if STANDING TOGETHER is available from the Healthy Aboriginal Network. If you're interested, contact them and ask.
