A music video that is the culmination of a project that gave voice to Aboriginal women healing from drug abuse/addictions and problems with the law, together with those who are helping them on their journey. The research project examined the role that both identity and stigma have in the healing journeys of criminalized Aboriginal women who are in treatment for drug abuse at centres across Canada. The research team is creating a discussion guide to accompany the video so it can be used in workshops at addiction treatment centres across Canada.

The featured song was created with the professional collaboration of singer/songwriter Violet Naytowhow, a Woodland Cree from Prince Albert. Naytowhow and others who composed the song perform in the music video.

Review, Network Winter/Spring 2005: There is a serious need for educational materials on reproductive health and this video helps fill that gap. It covers topics including puberty, menstruation, pregnancy and labour, birth control methods, and sexually transmitted diseases including HIV, and how to be tested for HIV. The film features deaf actresses in most roles and dialogue in American Sign Language throughout. It also has a spoken English voice-over and open captions (subtitles), so the film is accessible to hearing and hard-of-hearing people as well as sign language users.
