Spotlight on Indigenous Relocation
Broadcast: Sunday, December 1, 2019 at 4:00 p.m.
An honest, insightful discussion of the ongoing trauma and mental health impacts from the U.S. government’s American Indian Relocation Program.
The Relocation program was designed in the 1950s to assimilate Indigenous people into white-centric society and eliminate tribal governments and culture. Indigenous experts delve into the impacts of historical trauma in their community and the resiliency factors that empower so many to overcome persistent systems of discrimination.
