Part of a healing program for Indian people to find their way back to sobriety and wholeness.

 

 

In 1989, a group of Indian people—suffering from the post-traumatic stress disorder brought on by their experiences at Indian residential schools in Canada and the U.S.—came together in a four-day, culturally-based recovery process. In helping to put their lives together, the group, led by Phil Lane (Yankton/Chickasaw), worked through their issues, including pain, guilt, anger, confusion, and suffocation from every aspect of their lives being impacted. This DVD, from Four Worlds International Institute for Human and Community Development, was made as part of a healing program for Indian people to find their way back to sobriety and wholeness. It may be painful to watch, and should be used with caution and followed by time for debriefing and discussion.
