Facilitator Sweetwater Nannauck will guide participants through a brief history of colonization, the effects of historical trauma, and techniques for addressing historical trauma and oppression. Topics discussed include understanding how colonization affects indigenous people. This workshop shares easy-to-use tools to begin addressing historical trauma and healing at a community and personal level. -- This workshop uses self-reflection, group participation, role play, small group discussions, group meditation, and finally positive actions each individual can take. By acknowledging our collective past and focusing on healing traumas (rather than simply describing them), participants can explore ways to break down historical barriers in a safe and comfortable environment.
