Her Giveaway
A Spiritual Journey with AIDS
A film by Mona Smith
1988, 21 minutes, Color, VHS
Order No. W99146
Carole Lafavor (Ojibwe), activist, mother and registered nurse, is a person with AIDS. In this candid and moving portrait, Lafavor relates how she has come to terms with AIDS by combining her traditional beliefs and healing practices with western medicine. HER GIVEAWAY is more than just basic information—it is an inspiring example of how we can all learn from the Native American philosophy of illness. Produced by Smith (Dakota) for the Minnesota American Indian AIDS Task Force, this tape confronts the “official” invisibility of women, Native Americans and lesbians with AIDS.


    "Offers rare insights... Tremendously useful."
    Media Network

    "This frank, open, intimate portrait presents basic facts while dispelling many of the myths surrounding AIDS."
    Library Journal
