THE THICK DARK FOG
THE THICK DARK FOG
Synopsis

Walter Littlemoon atended a federal Indian boarding school in South Dakota sixty years ago.  The mission of many of these schools in 1950, was still to "kill the Indian and save the man."  The children were not allowed to be Indians  -to speak their language or express their culture or native identity in any way at the risk of being severely beaten, humilliated or abused.

What effects did these actions cause?

Many Indians, like Walter, lived with this unresolved trauma into adulthood, acting it out through alcoholism and domestic violence.  At age 58, Walter decided to write and publish his memoirs as a way to explain his past abusive behaviors to his estranged children.  But dealing with the memories of his boarding school days nearly put and end to it.
"The Thick Dark Fog" tells the story of how Walter confronted the "thick dark fog" of his past so that he could renew himself and his community.

Sinopsis

Walter Littlemoon acudió a un internado federal indígena en Dakota del Sur hace sesenta años. La Misión de muchas de estas escuelas en 1950, todavía era "matar al indio y salvar al hombre." A los niños no se les permitía ser Indios -hablar su idioma o expresar su cultura o identidad nativa de cualquier forma los ponía en riesgo de ser severamente golpeado, humillado o maltratado.
¿Qué efectos causaron estas acciones?

Muchos indios, al igual que Walter, han vivido con este trauma no resuelto en la edad adulta, y lo manifiestan a través de alcoholismo y la violencia doméstica. A la edad de 58 años, Walter decidió escribir y publicar sus memorias como una forma de explicar sus viejas conductas abusivas a sus distanciados hijos. Pero lidiar con los recuerdos de sus días de internado están cerca de terminar con él.
"The Thick Dark Fog" (La Espesa Niebla Oscura) cuenta la historia de cómo Walter se enfrentó a la "espesa niebla oscura" de su pasado para poder renovarse a sí mismo y a su comunidad.
