The storyteller details an early memory of tobacco use and how she draws personal strength from her Native American background. The video was produced in a three-day workshop held at Denver-based Sisters of Color United for Education in March 2011.
The video was produced for the research project “Tobacco control and digital storytelling: Collaborative videography with Latino adults to promote health equity among Colorado Latinos” (#09-0099). The purpose of the project is to equip Latino adults with media literacy and video production skills for creating their own digital stories based on health narratives aimed at increasing the leadership capacity of Latino adults.
Funds for the project provided by the UC Denver Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program, and the Colorado Clinical & Translational Sciences Institute at the University of Colorado.
