This thoughtful portrait shows Indigenous people living with HIV who are fighting the stigma of inter-sectional, inter-generational trauma by connecting to traditional spirituality.

This poetic short documentary combines storytelling and the healing power of Indigenous culture to reflect on the realities and discrimination faced by Indigenous people living with HIV. Produced under Hello Cool World's Drawing Wisdom initiative and directed by Jada-Gabrielle Pape (Saanich & Snueymuxw Nations). Created & Produced by Martin Morberg, Northern Tutchone/Tlingit man from the Yukon.

Audience Choice award winner at the Vancouver Queer Film Festival 2020.

Martin Morberg is a 2 Spirit Northern Tutchone and Tlingit man from the Yukon Territory. It is Martin's goal to empower the lives and voices of 2 Spirit and Indigenous people affected by HIV and addictions while contributing to the visibility of these communities. Much of Martin's work and activism is rooted in community and grassroots initiatives. Martin acknowledges that many Indigenous leaders and community members have guided and supported him in growing into the activist he is today. It is Martin’s goal to pay this knowledge and support forward to Indigenous communities and 2 Spirit people.
