AIDS—it kills Indians too!, 1980s

In addition to a straightforward message to counteract a common myth among some Native communities that AIDS is a disease that affects only gay men, this poster drew a clear line between the universal impact of AIDS and death by depicting a cremation ceremony conducted by some Native nations. In other words, like death, everybody is susceptible to AIDS.
