Mary Annette Pember to Lead Yearlong Project on Historical Trauma
Indian Country Today Media Network is embarking on a yearlong project examining the theory of historical trauma in mental health practices among Native peoples. Long time contributor, Mary Annette Pember of the Red Cliff Ojibwe tribe, has been awarded two national health fellowships, the Rosalynn Carter Fellowship for Mental Health Journalism and the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowship at USC Annenberg to study, to describe and ultimately identify the best methods of using the theory in addressing mental health challenges in Indian country.
My name is Lindsey McDowell. I have recently written and produced a series about five girls who mysteriously get powers and must learn to deal with them and each other. All of the women cast are women of color and I hope that if you enjoy our season premiere, you will share with the rest of the community.
