Actor Byron Chief-Moon to coordinate local ‘Stories For Health’

Actor Byron Chief-Moon is the new 'Stories for Health' coordinator.

Well-known American/Canadian actor, performer, and choreographer Byron Chief-Moon has been named as the new coordinator for Vancouver Coastal Health’s ‘Stories For Health’ project.

‘Stories For Health’ is funded by Vancouver Coastal Health to promote healthy living. There are 10 projects in the region, but Bella Coola’s is unique because it is aimed at helping vulnerable populations such as youth and seniors with the help of digital media.

The project will train any interested community members with the digital skills to record their stories in the hopes that these stories will get to the root of health-related issues in Bella Coola. The PHLAG (Promoting Healthy Lifestyles Action Group) is overseeing the project in conjunction with the Bella Coola Valley Learning Society (BCVLS). The BCVLS is confident this project will help bridge the ‘digital divide’ in our elderly population.

Byron Chief-Moon, who has been living in Bella Coola for the past few years, will play a central role in the project. Chief-Moon has a wealth of experience in performance arts, acting, dance and filmmaking. He has appeared in many television series and movies; most recently, a documentary of his work has aired on APTN.

He is also the founder of Coyote Arts dance performance, which began in 1999 in Vancouver and works with youth. His inspiring work examines and brings together contemporary and traditional values.

Chief-Moon has also appeared in such successful productions such as the Twilight Saga, Davinci’s Inquest, and Disney’s White Fang Two. To find out more about the project you can call the New Leaf learning Centre at 250-799-5822
