Please join Peninsula College Forks and Magic of Cinema, for a screening of Healing the Warrior’s Heart, a documentary examining post-traumatic stress disorder through the lens of Native American tradition and ceremony.
Focusing on practices from the Navajo, Ute, Zuni, Crow, and Blackfeet Nations, the film explores an understanding of PTSD as "a poisoning of the spirit," and the ways Native healers and spiritual leaders bring "cleansing, blessing, and soul healing" to men and women returning to their communities from America's wars. The film includes interviews and scenes with spiritual leaders, veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Elder veterans, family members, and tribal leaders.
The film will be screened May 24 at 6:30 pm at Peninsula College’s Forks campus, located at 481 S. Forks Ave. This film is free and open to the public.
