Seasons, Win-Aut 1993
The three 1993 issues of "Seasons" (the Spring/Summer issues are combined) address various aspects of dealing with Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) among Native Americans. The Winter issue focuses on tuberculosis (TB) and its incidence and treatment among HIV-positive individuals. "Remembering Tuberculosis" (Ernie Turner) is a personal account by the executive director of the Alaska Native Alcohol Recovery Center of his battles with tuberculosis and alcoholism. "Tuberculosis in the 90's" is an interview with Dr. Eric Goosby, emphasizing the risk of TB to HIV positive people and treatment options. In the Spring-Summer issue, "HIV Prevention in Rural Alaska" (Joe Cantil) describes both a program using telecommunications for AIDS prevention education in rural Alaska, and the Youth Leadership Symposium for AIDS Prevention, involving youth from rural Alaskan villages. "The ART Education Model: An Approach to HIV and AIDS Education Developed" by the AIDS Resource Team (ART), Incorporated, describes ART's programs in rural communities in the Midwest. "HIV Prevention for a Lifetime: Educating Our Children" (Calvin E. Twoguns) stresses communication with Native American children about high-risk behaviors. In the Autumn issue, "A Journey to Life: Native People with HIV Disease and Traditional Healing" (Marcie R. Rendon) discusses traditional healing and ceremonies as part of AIDS treatment. "Increasing Access to Care: The Native Special Initiatives Program" (Jay Johnson) describes nine grant projects involving culturally appropriate HIV/AIDS services. "It's Up to Me" (David Andrews) is a personal account by a homosexual Native American infected with AIDS. Each issue highlights the work of a Native American artist and includes book and video reviews and announcements of special events. (KS)
