Call to Mind: Spotlight on Indigenous Relocation
A straight-forward, insightful discussion of the cultural effects of ongoing trauma and mental health impacts from the federal governments relocation program designed in the 1950s to assimilate Indigenous people into white-centric society and eliminate tribal governments and culture. This discussion is held by and for Indigenous people living in the U.S. and will include audience Q&A.
Hosted by Anton Treuer (Leech Lake), American Indian panelists will delve into the impacts of historical trauma and the resiliency factors that empower so many to overcome the systems of discrimination and persist. This event will be recorded for broadcast/publication.
This event is inspired by a forthcoming documentary from Minnesota Public Radio and APM Reports called "Uprooted: The 1950s Plan to Erase Indian Country" by MPR News reporter and producer Max Nesterak. Max will share excerpts of his documentary before the panel discussion.
