Legacy: Trauma, Story and Indigenous Healing by Suzanne Methot, Nehiyaw writer, editor, educator and community worker comprises ten chapters. This book opens with a chapter on How things work and Why Stories Matter, citing reports on psychological and emotional abuse in Indigenous communities and the impact of intergenerational trauma, delegitimizing the notion that current challenges within Indigenous communities are the result of inherent deficiencies in Indigenous peoples and cultures. This chapter also references Indigenous stories as spirals existing in time and space with a common root becoming part of lives of successive generations; about everyday stories and sacred stories belonging to people, families and communities. Chapter 2 What It Means to Be Colonized discusses power, identity, self-concept and control and focuses on PTSD and CPTSD – complex PTSD - related to the impacts of systemic and intergenerational trauma and the disruption of Indigenous social structures. Other chapters include Becoming Human focusing on childhood trauma; The Angry Indian and Culture of Blame includes a discussion on Maslow’s self-actualization model and his Niitsitapi influence in relation to being values/Seven Sacred Teachings as a framework for healthy human functioning for human society in the context of lateral violence. The remaining chapters, Invisible roots, Fractured Narratives, What the Body Remembers, Sacred Being, Recreating the Structures of Belonging, and Killing the Wittigo round out this compelling work on the legacy of trauma, story and healing. Chapters includes a summary of main points. The medicine circle is central to this work. This book is also an informative teacher’s resource.
