Historic Trauma Transmission Theory and Method

The Faculty of Education's Theory and Method Seminar Series presents:

Historic Trauma Transmission Theory and Method
Presenter: Natalie Owl, Faculty of Education (Grad Studies), University of Regina

Abstract: Historic Trauma Transmission Theory (HTTT) was developed Dr. Maria Yellow Horse Brave Heart and has been utilized by Owl (2016) in Effects of the Intergenerational Residential School Experience and Negative Racial Stereotyping on Ojibwe Speech Patterns in Mid-Northern Ontario Anishnawbek.

HTTT hypothesizes that Indigenous people were, and still are, constantly afflicted by the impacts of European contact (ie. disease, alcoholism, warfare, colonialism, economic shift, Indian Residential School system) and due to the rapid cultural loss of traditional Elders and Medicine people, they did not have time to proactively develop healing strategies. As a result, Historic Trauma Response (HTR) which is similar to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and psychic trauma, manifested within the individual and the culture intergenerationally (Historic Unresolved Grief). HTTT theorizes that with increased awareness of the traumatic events and their origins, "reintegration of the past in the present," Indigenous people are able to develop effective traditional healing strategies that are specific to each community.

Faculty and students are encouraged to attend. Everyone is welcome. Coffee is provided. No registration is required.
