BOOK

Our Smallest Warriors, Our Strongest Medicine: Overcoming COVID-19 (downloadable pdf)

This children’s storybook is a re-telling of My Hero is You, developed by the Inter-Agency Standing Committee Reference Group on Mental Health and Psychosocial Support in Emergency Settings (IASC MHPSS RG). An intertribal workgroup convened to re-write this story and create illustrations that represent Indigenous peoples, values, and communities. The adapted story seeks to reach Indigenous peoples across Turtle Island and portray a sense of communal efficacy, strength and hope in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you to the Johns Hopkins University Alliance for a Healthier World, as well as the JHU Office of the President and Office of the Provost, for funding this project.
