Addressing Trauma From An Indigenous Lens

Speaker(s) Featured: Dr. Brenda Restoule, Carol Hopkins


This video addresses the importance of community and wellness from the Indigenous perspective. Restoule and Hopkins explain culturally informed approaches as a method to support community members when they have experienced trauma. By seeking help within the community, they will strengthen social relations and restore the overall Indigenous identity. The focal point of this video is that collectively, communities are resilient, and need to take care of one another to prevent abuse and neglect. When Indigenous communities are connected to their land, language, creation, and ancestors, they are able to contribute more positively to the wellbeing of one another.
