Healing and Recognizing Historical Trauma - Part 1

Genocide. Slavery. Forced relocation. Cultural destruction.

These experiences shared by communities can result in cumulative emotional and psychological wounds that carry across generations. The effects of historical traumas inflicted on people because of their race linger in descendants and prevents material, social and spiritual progress of all communities. The persistent cycle of trauma continues to destroy as it is not just about what happened, but it’s about what is happening now.

Using creative, interactive tools, participants will learn about historical trauma and how to recognize its symptoms in individuals, communities, and institutions. Engage with a diverse community of participants to uncover buried history and begin the process of healing. This first session will be focused on the experiences of First Nations Native peoples of lands now called the USA.
