The Essence of Healing: The Journey of American Indian Nurses
The Essence of Healing: The Journey of American Indian Nurses documentary showcases the lives of 14 nurses who live and work in the Upper Great Plains.
While their lives and stories are different, they all share a common theme – their past life experiences and American Indian heritage have made them
extraordinary healers. This documentary is narrated by Hattie Kauffman, former ABC news correspondent and member of the Nez Perce Tribe. It was viewed
by Iris Torvik, Vice President, Women and Children Services, Baylor Medical Center, Dr. Josepha Campinha-Bacote, President, Transcultural C.A.R.E Associates,
and Dr. Sue Hassmiller, Senior Advisor for Nursing, Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. All three individuals permitted us to put their comments about the film on
the DVD cover.
You can view the trailer at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qfO0KwOAE9s&feature=youtu.be.
To date the documentary has won awards at the Canadian Diversity Film Festival, the Chandler Film Festival, and the Hollywood International Independent
Documentary Film Festival.
