More than 3,000 American Indians and Alaska Natives have been infected by HIV. Think you’re not at risk? Think again – Half of new HIV infections occur among teens and young adults!

National Native American HIV/AIDS Awareness Day is March 20th. Here’s what you can do: 

  • Get ideas and order awareness day materials: nnhaad.org
  • Host a luncheon with community members to discuss STD/HIV and other issues affecting teens and their health. 
  • Organize a Wall of Moccasins in a prominent place, to honor Native people who have died from HIV/AIDS. 
  • Organize a STD/HIV testing event for your school or clinic. Learn how at: itsyoursexlife.com/toolkit
  • Organize a Benefit Concert, Open Mic Night, or Poetry Slam for Your Cause 
  • Watch and discuss videos from Native STAND, or create and share your own HIV prevention videos:  youtube.com/user/nativeStand7
