Meth in American indian country
Hello! My name is Lynn "Sota" Hart owner of No Xcuses None! and a proud member of the Yankton Sioux tribe located in SE South Dakota. And the designer of the "Original American Indian Anti-Meth posters for Youth Across America".
I specifically designed these posters to be relevant to Indian country because I felt they were unique and would aid in the battle against Meth on and off the American Indian reservations. It’s not going to be the "cure all" but I feel that the families and their youth living on the reservations in America need to use whatever American Indian people can to identify with in their own culture to help combat the use of Meth in their own backyards. So I designed the American Indian Anti-Meth posters to convey this message to Indian country. Meth knows nothing or cares anything about your culture, your race, sex, or spirituality. As a proud member of the Yankton Sioux Tribe I do care about preserving our cultural way of life and all the youth and families living within that sacred circle.
I started working on the project last spring or early summer 2007 when I noticed that the posters I saw were all about the after effects of meth; images of white people with rotten teeth and bad hair and nothing specific to American Indian culture. Nothing had an Indian motiff, so I decided to create posters for kids to take home and share with their families and friends and to put up in their bedrooms as a constant reminder to think about the dangers of Meth. Knowing how kids are, if you give one kid something cool and make it fun to have then it becomes another tool to use to get the message across to our youth. My posters are are 11x17" highly glossed and look great! I have them in NM,WA,OR,MT,CO,ND,MN,WI, etc,etc References are available upon request. Again, please visit my website or just call me (605)-491-4598 if you have any questions at all.
The posters are very well received and are a positive tool and are effective in showing our youth a strong positive message against Meth in your community.
