The Healthy Aboriginal Network – Non-profit promotion of health, literacy & wellness

Posted on Updated on

The Healthy Aboriginal Network is excited to release a new resource today. And for those of you that were on vacation this summer, or just weren’t able to check out our other near-release resources, two re-releases:

United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) poster series

We were tremendously lucky to receive funding this spring to create a UNCRC poster series, with an Aboriginal youth focus. There are 42 posters in all – one for each Right. Please check out www.thehealthyaboriginal.net/UNCRC to see a preview. We are selling the posters in sets of 42 (no individual poster sales) for around $228, which includes shipping and taxes. If you are interested in buying a set please send an email to sean@thehealthyaboriginal.net with your address and we will send you an invoice. If you are having trouble seeing the new pages, refresh your browser (that swirly icon to the far right of the website you’re visiting).

Financial literacy comic book

We all think we know what happens to our money – how much we make and where we spend it. And if we’re asked whether impulse buys and payday loans are a good idea, we all likely know that the answer is ‘no’. But making the right decision at the right time can be hard to do. In The Game Plan, check out how money all finally makes sense to Jake once he relates it to his lacrosse aspirations. There is a preview and pricing at www.thehealthyaboriginal.net and the book can be ordered by sending an email with your address to sean@thehealthyaboriginal.net.

Residential school comic book and augmented reality rear cover

With so much attention on the Reconciliation Canada event in Vancouver this September, we thought it prudent to remind people that we released a residential school book this spring. The story is similar to testimony heard at the Truth and Reconciliation events, so it can be a tough story to read. But if you’re looking to educate youth on what happened to us as Native people, you’ll have a hard time finding a better resource. There is a preview and pricing at www.thehealthyaboriginal.net. Please send an email to sean@thehealthyaboriginal.net with your address if you’d like to order.

There is also a bonus on the rear outside cover. To see it, download the free Layar App from the store on your Android or iPhone. Open the App and point the camera at our cover (also available here – www.thehealthyaboriginal.net/augmented/images/IRS_ad.pdf) to trigger a survivor’s story. You won’t be disappointed.

We hope you continue to find us relevant to youth’s needs,
