Samia's Blog

I am adding a link to the blog of a friend of mine, Samia: Fulbright Journey to Turtle Island. She is also here in the USA for a year on a Fulbright scholarship. Samia is researching a PhD in 'inter generational trauma' which addresses the enormous discrepancy between the health of indigenous peoples and that of non-indigenous people in developed countries (e.g Aboriginal Australians on average live 17 years less than other Australians). She is doing this through digital story telling, but also doing some incredible healing work as she moves around the US, and she has has been fantastic in introducing me to indigenous peoples where-ever we go (Arizona, California).

As a result of these connections, I have been invited to give a talk at AILDI (American Indian Language Development Institute) in June, which I am really looking forward to. Check out Samia's blog for lots of grass roots American Indian stories, projects and links.
