Completing the Circle: Towards an Understanding of Multiple Losses in Aboriginal Communities

Author(s)Completing the Circle Project Team

This video is meant for academics and other audiences who wish to understand the issue of "complex loss" among Aboriginal communities. Multiple oppressions and colonization have affected Aboriginal Peoples and contribute to a pattern of intergenerational trauma that must be deconstructed and understood politically. In this video, Dr. Bourassa explains the impact of colonization on generations of Aboriginal communities. In addition, diversity in protocol among many First Nations and Metis communities is shared by Aboriginal Elders and community members. See attached order form.
