The Retreat and the New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence host this special event for domestic violence program advocates and their community and system partners.
Michelle D. Schenandoah will present “A Haudenosaunee Perspective on Historical Trauma: A Journey Through the History: From Creation to Residential Schools to Today.” This presentation will take participants through indigenous history to help create a better understanding of the social landscape in indigenous communities today, as well as a greater understanding of indigenous people.
We will also be joined by Jonel Beauvais who will walk participants through the systematic dismantling of Indigenous families and will discuss the historical and ongoing impact of that on Native communities today. The session will explore the emotional and spiritual values of native families and provide an opportunity for creating insight and connection with Indigenous people. She invites a creative and open space to collectively come to a place of resolution and healing.
