AbstractThis thesis is a critical examination of how music is used in health education interventions dealing with HIV/AIDS. More specifically, this research focuses on the use of hip-hop in educative programs within a North American context. To illuminate in detail how music may be used in a health education program, an exploratory/descriptive analysis of one HIV education program, Taking Action, an arts-based HIV prevention workshop for Aboriginal youth, was conducted. Interviews with the musicians and facilitators involved in this workshop confirmed that hip-hop was thought to be, for multiple reasons, an appropriate strategy for engaging Aboriginal youth in HIV/AIDS prevention. The study raises further questions about the needs of musicians who partner with organizations in this context. -- Keywords: Hip-hop; health education; Aboriginal; HIV/AIDS.
