Healing Circle: A Native Soap Opera

Nativo Lodge, Albuquerque, New Mexico

Learn how to use the unique and entertaining format of a story filled radio drama to inspire healthy lifestyles in your Native community.Contribute to the development of an innovative health promotion radio drama, Healing Circle (working title), being created for national distribution on Native radio stations across the country. Following the principles of Entertainment Education, Healing Circle blends important health messages into an entertaining format.

Work with acclaimed professionals to learn more about the principles of entertainment education, learn the skills to develop a radio show and discuss your community’s health priorities. The workshop will also feature the Healing Circle head writer, Arigon Starr, Kickapoo musician and writer. Starr has created scripts that address Native issues—across the generations—in a light-hearted, but serious way. Guest appearances by some of NV1’s radio hosts are also scheduled!

Create your own radio drama! Working in small groups, participants will learn how to write a five-minute dramatic radio script to address a health issue, act and direct for radio, and record their own mini radio dramas. Each attendee will return home with at least one five-minute health promotion radio drama and the skills needed to use Entertainment Education in their own communities.

Partners. The Koahnic Broadcast Company/NV1, Native American Public Telecommunications, The National Society for American Indian Elderly, Native Voices at the Autry, The University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health, Media for Health and PCI-Media Impact.
