Somatic Archaeology© and Neuro-Decolonization for Intergenerational Healing
Modern Western genetics and Traditional Indigenous Knowledge share common ground in their understanding that the traits and tendencies we inherit from our ancestors can affect our health in both positive and negative ways. However, our genes are not our destiny. We can engage in activities that mediate the expression of both troublesome and beneficial genetic variants. In this session we will explore how traditional Indigenous lifestyle practices can improve our genetic plasticity and move us away from victimhood and poor health to wellness. Presenters will share somatic and mindfulness-based techniques based in Indigenous ways of knowing that can help us cure our historical amnesia, deepen our self-awareness, boost our self-reliance, and restore our power to consciously manifest our unique destiny. With: Dr. Michael Yellow Bird (Mandan/Hidatsa/Arikara); Dr. Ruby Gibson (Oglala Sioux).
