We have created a total of five 2-3 minute videos designed to increase the visibility of Native American community members, reduce mental health stigma and foster belonging within the community. This project was authored by the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health AI/AN UnderServed Cultural Community (AI/AN UsCC) and is carried out by our nonprofit team.

Strength In Community

In this video on Intergenerational Trauma and Resilience, Dr. Carrie Johnson explains how past experiences impact us today and also focuses on addressing mental health needs to contribute to community resilience. 

Elders Storytelling

In this video, Virginia shares the importance of carrying on her oral traditions and using storytelling to maintain and pass on our connection to the land to future generations. She also speaks to the importance of language and how our connection to language defines our worldview. 


For this video, we connected with Dannie Cesenña (Mexica/Maya Yucateco). Dannie (He, They) is a two-spirit Los Angeles community member and the Network Director of CA LGBTQ Health and Human Services Network.
