Reel Youth 2019
Indigenous youth Colorado Joseph, Arianna Johansen, Desmond Peters III, Leilani Wright, Jimmy Lincoln, and Jenna Quock created this film, Grief Prayer. Grief Prayer is a meditation on grief, in the context of colonization and cultural loss. This film was made as part of the First Directions program, which brings together Indigenous youth to connect with our culture, deepen our response to HIV and Hep C stigma, and produce films that give voice to our experience and ideas about decolonization. 
First Directions is made possible with support from YouthCO, Yúusnewas, and the First Nations Health Authority.
