DISMANTLING THE ARCHITECTURE AND REFURBISHMENT OF INDIGENOUS TRAUMA by Red Haircrow

“In Germany and most of the world, the trauma North American Indigenous peoples experience is mostly believed to be from events in the past, focusing on direct methods and effects of invasion and colonization by Europeans. However, the cycle of genocide, of violence, erasure, and the silencing and „replacement“ of Native peoples never ended.
Despite tremendous efforts and greater availability of firsthand Indigenous sources of knowledge and history, the renovation and refurbishment of trauma continues in a variety of ways, from the persistence of Eurocentrism in curricula at all levels of education, to pop culture references and western societies, systems and structures as whole. Honest examination and humility is needed in examining the past and present history of Indigenous peoples, not only of North America and worldwide, but those of Europe and the unresolved trauma here, which connection is often overlooked or minimized.”
