This is an entertaining package especially designed for the Primary level. The words, images, and symbols contained in this package are familiar ones to the northern Native child.
Although the specific purpose is to warn the child of the dangers of solvent abuse, a non-threatening approach has been taken. The overall message is focused on building a positive self-image in the child. The positive self-image being a prerequisite for healthy personal development, and self-respect that generates respect for others.
Winston Wuttunee, the featured artist on the cassette tape who serves as a role model for the Native child, is a happy, enthusiastic, and confident Native performer.
