Dodging Bullets

New Documentary Film on Historical Trauma
by October 30, 2016

No one would contest that Native American families are struggling with disproportionately high rates of substance abuse, diabetes, physical violence, suicide, imprisonment and poverty. However, when we get into the reasons for these epidemics the public tends to rationalize it according to their own experiences and personal opinions–dismissing the cumulative and ongoing trans-generational injuries that Indigenous Peoples have faced.

Dodging Bullets is a documentary film that explores the root cause–the consequences of history–and the ongoing effort to facilitate healing from the epidemics that plague so many native communities across North America.
