Historical trauma topic of film, discussion

PORT ANGELES — “Dodging Bullets,” a documentary that confronts historical trauma through interviews and discussions with young Indigenous people, will be screened Thursday with a discussion on Zoom shortly after the film.

The film will be offered from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday at https://pencol-edu.zoom.us/j/82059572372. The meeting ID is 820 5957 2372.

From 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m., Studium Generale will feature a discussion about historical trauma with Kendra Aguilar (Luiseno) and Gayla Johnson (Lower Elwha Klallam).

Aguilar’s doctoral work focuses on the impacts of indigenous educational trauma, both individually and generationally, and community-based approaches to solutions and repair.

Said Johnson: “In the past three years my life focus has been geared towards bringing community awareness to Generational Trauma, Two Spirit and our people walking in two worlds through Native eyes.”

To join the Studium discussion, go to https://pencol-edu.zoom.us/j/89616075652. The meeting ID is 896 1607 5652.

The Peninsula College events are presented by Studium Generale, Magic of Cinema, The Center for Teaching and Learning, and House of Learning, PC Longhouse.
