A Healthy Rhythm

The mesmerizing swell of drumming fills the gymnasium of amiskwaciy Academy during a traditional Aboriginal celebration. The school is participating in Why Act Now?, a U of A research project aimed at better understanding the health of urban Aboriginal youth. Educational materials are being piloted in amiskwaciy and other schools around Edmonton.
