Quote of the Day from Teaching Truly

Quotes from Teaching Truly: A Curriculum to Indigenize Mainstream Education by Four Arrows (Don Trent Jacobs)

“The cumulative intergenerational experiences of trauma and cultural loss act to perpetuate legacies of social systems, policies and institutions that disrupt the natural protective and adaptive features of a culture. Over time, critical cultural protective factors are displaced by the shared experience of the cumulative trauma. In this way, historical trauma becomes a self-perpetuating phenomenon, woven into the tattered tapestry of cultural identity. (p. 207 Rignell and Brandell) ~ Teaching Truly Pg 42
