NLM Native Voices iPad App
To give users a virtual experience of its new exhibition, Native Voices: Native Peoples’ Concepts of Health and Illness (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/nativevoices/index.html), NLM has created Native Voices iPad app. The app presents video interviews with tribal elders, healers and other prominent people who practice traditional medicine, Western medicine or a combination of both.
From their unique experiences and perspectives, they weave a tapestry of stories of the vibrant and diverse cultures and medicine ways of Alaska Natives, Native Americans and Native Hawaiians. Other video clips provide an exhibition overview and highlights of the 4,400-mile journey of the totem pole specially created for the exhibition. The Native Voices app works on all iPads with iOS4.2 and higher. To download the free app, go to the Apple iTunes store (www.apple.com/iTunes) and type in “NLM Native Voices.”
