Canadian Aboriginal AIDS Network invites you to Promising Practices in Indigenous Communities in Saskatchewan screening
You are cordially invited to join us for the Promising Practices Documentary Screening and Premiere event to be held at select cities across Canada. This film had an initial screening on July 12, 2016 in Saskatoon and was officially launched in Durban South Africa on July 23, 2016.
In celebration of the United Nations International Day of World’s Indigenous Peoples on August 9, the film will be officially released in Canada.
Indigenous communities in Saskatchewan are experiencing HIV and AIDS rates among highest in Canada. Many communities are taking ownership of their health using culturally appropriate practices and addressing the epidemic.
These are their stories.
It is our hope that this film inspires other communities to address HIV and AIDS issues utilizing their wise practices.
“I really dream of a day our communities are able to embrace HIV positive people so we can come home.” Krista Shore
