Exploring Indigenous means to healthier individuals, families, and communities.
I’ve been stumbling across books serendipitously at the library, falling down a rabbit hole of threads. Of late, it’s been neurocognition – neuroplasticity in particular, as well as anthroplogy (although here I’m really getting in on the ground flood). The most recent thread in this quipu appeared suddenly with my reserved books at the library. I don’t recall having requested it, but that’s not uncommon. In Indigenous Healing by Rupert Ross describes the continuing effects of the residential schools on survivors and their children. Ross describes how native healing circles have proved the only successful means of bringing survivors, their families, and communities out of the cycles of addiction, violence, suicide.
