It’s been nearly a quarter of a century since Cozad learned that she has HIV. Over the years, she’s reached a truce with the virus. She credits her spiritual advisers, who “had to teach me how to approach this disease and approach my body in a positive way.” HIV’s goal is not to kill her, since then it, too, would die, explains Cozad, one of the first Native American women to speak publicly about living with HIV. “And so it’s life, and you respect life. HIV is a teacher for me. It has transformed my life. It has humbled me. I don’t feel cured, but I feel healed because I’m at peace with this disease.”
