Multigeneration Trauma and Reconciliation
This presentation is about multigeneration trauma and reconciliation. It is specific to Inuit and how foster families can be a support working towards decolonization. It introduces where Nunatsiavut land claim area is geographically. We share some information about inequalities that Inuit in Canada continue to face. We will touch on some historical trauma Inuit had experienced such as the Spanish flu, forced relocation and residential schools in Labrador. We also discuss ways foster parents can be a support including some discussions around CSSD’s new cultural connection plan policy.

Presented by: Krista Mogridge and April Andersen with the Department of Health and Social Development, Nunatsiavut Government
