Connections Spotlight — CCC&Y’s Webinar Part B Historical Trauma now available

Jul 7, 2020 | CCC&Y Info & Events

By the Coconino Coalition for Children & Youth

CCC&Y’s Webinar Part B Historical Trauma now available by clicking here.

In Part B, culturalist and historic trauma specialist Iya Affo takes us deeper into the impact historical trauma has on so many of our community members. A topic that is not always openly discussed and well understood in mainstream society, historic trauma is often not considered when designing helping programs, systems or overall prevention programming and worse when placing judgements against groups of people. 

During the presentation, Affo discussed such considerations as:

  • How do we see the impact of historical trauma in our day to day life with regard to BIPOC (black indigenous & people of color)?
  • What biases do we have that are based on misunderstanding of BIPOC’s culture?
  • How can we gently remind ourselves when we are seeing the world through out own lens?

Affo also used her family’s history to discuss how historical trauma affects black indigenous & people of color to this very day.

Affo is the founder of Heal Historic Trauma and with Phoenix Rising in Residence (AZ) who strives to cultivate love and inclusivity to help promote the healing and decolonization of indigenous people by harmonizing traditional medicine with western medicine to promote holistic healing.

Recently, CCC&Y has agreed to partner with Heal Historical Trauma to become a historical trauma certified agency, which will include providing training to the non-profit organization during a full day level-one certification program.
