Historical Trauma Workshop

February 13 @ 8:30 am - February 14 @ 12:30 pm CST


An event by NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community
and Sioux Falls Seminary

Wednesday, February 13, from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM

and Thursday, February 14, from 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM

Engage in two days of dialogue on hurt, healing, and hope. Come and hear stories of trauma, healing, and hope among our Indigenous people. Discover what trauma-informed psychological and spiritual care looks like, or could look like, in Indigenous contexts and learn about perspectives and methods of spiritual care informed by an Indigenous understanding of theology and psychology.

The workshop will include presentations by Diane Campeau, Terry LeBlanc, and Linda and Rick Martin and incorporate talking circles, traditional contextualized forms of worship, and large group dialogue.

Encouraged to attend are Indigenous people, Indigenous people involved in ministry with Indigenous people, non-Indigenous individuals involved in ministry with Indigenous people, seminary students, and anyone with a desire to learn more about the issue of trauma and its impact on Indigenous populations across North America.

Join NAIITS: An Indigenous Learning Community and Sioux Falls Seminary for presentations and discussions designed to help us respond in good ways to communities and individuals dealing with experiences of trauma and abuse. Indigenous and non-Indigenous practitioners, together having a vast wealth of experience, will lead us into an exploration of the critical importance of ministry that is trauma-informed and compassionately framed. Come and explore this profoundly important need in ministry with Indigenous people. You’ll be transformed and better equipped as a result. See you there. –Terry LeBlanc, Director of NAIITS
