Yoeme Youth Health Conference of the Pascua Yaqui Tribal Community Project

AHSL will work with Hiaki High School and Toltecalli High School to develop a student-planned, school supported day-long health-oriented youth conference aimed at improving health in the community , connecting teens with their traditional roots, and giving students online tools they can use to inform themselves and their community of the role of health in their lives. In the past the Yoeme (?the people?) Youth Health Conference has been held to inform community members and students about health issues affecting the community, and resources available; connections to the culture and traditions are integrated at this conference. Last year Hiaki held its 3rd annual Yoeme Youth Conference. This year in collaboration with AHSL we would like to document the development and planning of the conference, including interviews of students and members of the tribe at key sections of the conference. We would like to explore ways to make the video widely available to others (but permission from the tribe for this is a requirement and may take a while).
