Tired of the silence around adolescent pregnancy, the Cherokee Youth Council decided to start a conversation. They knew that the best way to reach their peers was to talk directly to them. So the council put together a 13-minute film addressing teenage pregnancy from both a youth and a Native perspective.
(For a snapshot of another group of Native youth using video to speak out, read this article in NCFY's e-magazine for youth workers, the Exchange.)
