Healing Haunted Histories: Injustice & Families Stories

American landscapes and narratives are ?haunted? by Indigenous genocide, Black enslavement and other historic and continuing social injustices. We will explore how trauma and resilience, as well as devised and dismembered stories, inhabit our family and communal places, memories and myths. Working from our recently completed book project exploring “Landlines, Bloodlines & Songlines,” we?ll map inward and outward journeys to face our collective history and to practice restorative solidarity, especially in our home places. Participants are encouraged to bring whatever fragments you can gather of your genealogical and geographic history for this interactive process.
