In the last issue of the Journal there was an article about the exposure of Indigenous people to excessive noise causing hearing loss. This article contains some poster and story resources to explain the story and help prevent hearing loss from too much exposure to loud noise. Lots of Indigenous people have trouble listening because they have bad ears (hearing loss). Mostly, adults have bad ears because they had lots of ear infections when they were young kids. These infections damaged their ears. But now, too many Indigenous people are getting bad ears because of too much loud noise. These posters and stories tell about how listening to loud noise for too long will damage people's ears.
