Dodging Bullets

Thank you for taking the time to read this important message.

For 4 years I have donated my time as Executive Director of the award-winning indie film Dodging Bullets. This film affirms most everything I have learned through bringing Elders’ Wisdom, Children’s Song to communities large and small throughout this nation. The film documents Historical Trauma which is prominent in Native American communities. Historical Trauma is a term used by social workers and psychologists, it refers to the cumulative emotional and psychological wounding of a group of people caused by traumatic experiences. This trauma is epigenetically passed down from one generation to another and causes health care problems in today’s generation.

We Need Your Help

I am asking people to step up and help this spread the message by supporting the outreach of this film. There are two ways you can donate.

  • For non-Natives, the film dispels myths about Native peoples.
