Event Title

Restoring Dignity

Description

Federal policies have had a devastating effect on Native American families. One of the policies scooped Native American children from their homes and sent them to residential or boarding schools, which led to generations of dysfunctional individuals. Several Native American organizations are working to provide services which allow individuals to cope with the Historical trauma caused by this. Neto Hatinakwe Onkwehowe (Neto) provides such a service through the arts by engaging community members in traditional workshops which are led by Native Americans who have found through spirituality a process to encourage healing. The mission of Neto is "To promote the arts and culture of the indigenous people of the America’s." This leads us to find venues and partners to fulfill our mission. By this we are creating awareness of the ways in which artistic expressions provide an outlet and way to help heal some of the wounds of historical trauma.
