The Power of Digital Storytelling

When Port Gamble/S'Klallam Tribal member Tleena Ives and her sister first watched Tleena's digital story, Exit Disclaimer: You Are Leaving www.ihs.gov they cried.

While watching, Tleena realized she had a story to tell, one that could help people. She also acknowledged the pain she had gone through, and that the pain was temporary. "When I see the pictures of me struggling, I know that they were just moments. They were not permanent. I realized I can overcome adversity."
