Native American Heritage Month Public Lecture - Historical Trauma: Spirit of Survival

 
Date:
Monday, Nov. 13, 2017
 
Time:
7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
 
Description:
Historical Trauma: Spirit of Survival.
Roberta Paul, PhD.

The need to heal intergenerational historical trauma wounds is profound and deep in the Native American community. Native Americans have experienced massive losses of lives, land, traditional ways and languages. These acts of assimilation affected Dr. Paul's family and the purpose of her research was to identify the historical unresolved grief over five generations of her Ni Mii Puu (Nez Perce) family. Finding and telling the generational stories revealed that healing could occur by placing historical pain within the context of bearing witness, affirming the family world view that we are living, and being Ni Mii Puu. Reclaiming our story has become a story of understanding the capacity of family ancestors to survive injury, forgiveness, spiritual healing, and a strong will to survive against all odds.
