Intergenerational Trauma in Indigenous Communities and Movements for Indigenous Cultural Survival

Trainers:

Mishy Lesser, Ed.D., Learning Director for Upstander Project and Education Fellow at the Dodd Research Center at UConn; and Anthony Melting Tallow, (Blackfoot Nation of Siksika, Alberta, Canada), visual artist, public speaker, and indigenous social justice advocate; and Luz Orozco Ortiz, co‐chair of the Smith Indigenous Students and Allies Association.

Class Description:

Continuing the conversation begun with the screening of Dawnland on March 3, this class will provide an intimate space in which to deepen your understanding of the removal of native children from their families, and of native people from their land. We will explore some of the ongoing impacts of this violence and ways to support movements for indigenous cultural survival. Dinner will be provided, thanks to the support of the Smith Center for Religious and Spiritual Life.

The Dawnland screening and related classes are co‐sponsored by the Smith Center for Religious and Spiritual Life, Smith Indigenous Students and Allies Association, and the Smith Office for Equity and Inclusion.
