Storyline

The O'odham Indian reservations of southern Arizona are marked with the dubious distinction of perhaps the highest rates of Type 2 diabetes in the world. Exploring a re-conceptualization of chronic disease as the body's response to "futurelessness" a condition arising from decades of oppression and historical trauma we look at the prospects for a new approach that places a community taking control of its own destiny as fundamental to regaining health. Written by California Newsreel
