Photovoice is a medium of storytelling for social justice. We highlight how Native American youth draw on cultural heritage to enjoy and promote healthy relationships. Various counter narratives to commonly held stereotypes have emerged from this project. These narratives highlight the wisdom, strength, and power of Native American culture that guide young people in their spiritual, mental, physical and social development.
