Conference addresses intergenerational trauma in Indian Country

 


American Indian history includes plenty of injustice on the part of the United States government. Native children ripped from families and placed in boarding schools. Tribal designations and land stripped away. Tribal languages outlawed. Indians relocated or killed such as the approximately 300 who died in the Sioux massacre at Wounded Knee.

The ugly trail of dominance and disrespect still stirs up plenty of anger in Indian Country.

Recent sessions in Mission were not about reliving past atrocities, however, but rather on moving forward despite them.
