'Diabetes Is Not Our Way'

'Diabetes Is Not Our Way'

The Cheyenne River Youth Project, an after-school program on the Cheyenne River Sioux reservation in South Dakota, has just released a new media campaign, Diabetes Is Not Our Way, with films and PSAs intended to help indigenous communities understand and fight this scourge. They walk the walk as well -- with wholesome food and exercise for the kids who come there in the afternoon and evening. I dropped by one evening last month, and the place was hopping with healthy activities. Here's the story I wrote, for Indian Country Today:
