The Office of Community Outreach & Engagement: "Better Outcomes for Everyone"

Jul 8, 2021

In this special episode, Program Manager and Tribal Liaison for the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance,  Ursula Tsosie, MSPH talks with Leona Swamp, Wolf clan from the Akwesasne Mohawk Nation and Executive Director of ASESHATE:KA'TE Grief Services, a Non-Profit Organization focused on helping Indigenous people process their grief in a safe and supportive environment, while also incorporating traditional teachings. Leona leads us in a discussion about the impacts of unresolved grief and intergenerational trauma on Indigenous people. The lasting and profound impact caused by the government’s treatment of Indigenous people has never been appropriately addressed and our discussion today will shed some light on this topic.
