He Wo Un Poh: Recovery in Native America

A critical look at the effects of alcoholism on Native American communities. Singer, a member of the Santa Clara Tewa Pueblo, introduces us to the experiences of seven Native Americans on the road to recovery from alcohol abuse. Along the way, she reveals her own first-hand experience with alcoholism. This innovative video takes an intimate approach to a problem which is both widespread and misunderstood.
