A trickster who’s always trying to fool himself and others, Iktomi, struggles with accepting his health needs and doesn’t want to believe he has to change his bad habits in order to stay healthy. Audiences learn along with Iktomi, valuable lessons about caring for physical, mental and emotional health.
KAT Communications worked with Standing Rock Diabetes on “Iktomi’s Walk With Diabetes” and The Aberdeen Area Indian Health Service on the next four programs in the series: “Mind, Spirit and Emotion;” “Learning About Foot Care;” “Learning About Nutrition;” and “Moving to Stay Healthy.”
Comment: It's always a good idea to use the popular media to impart information such as good health practices. Comic books, cartoons, videos, video games...whatever works.
This is apparently part one of 15, which would make this an hour-long cartoon. I'm not sure a lot of people will sit still for something that long. If it were me, I'd make it shorter, speed up the pace, and use more humor.
