Summary Read First Chapter image missing

This book shows that it is necessary to understand intergenerational trauma and internalized oppression in order to understand Native Americans today. It makes native American ways of conceptualizing the world available to readers.

"This is a book about Native Americans written the way it should be." -- Russell Thornton, Dartmouth College

This book presents a theoretical discussion of problems and issues encountered in the Native American community from a perspective that accepts Native knowledge as legitimate. Native American cosmology and metaphor are used extensively in order to deal with specific problems such as alcoholism, suicide, family, and community problems. The authors discuss what it means to present material from the perspective of a people who have legitimate ways of knowing and conceptualizing reality and show that it is imperative to understand intergenerational trauma and internalized oppression in order to understand the issues facing Native Americans today.

Eduardo Duran is Director of the Family and Child Guidance Clinic and Bonnie Duran is Director of the Healthy Nations Project at the Urban Indian Health Clinic in Oakland, CA.
