Short Description: 
Indian Country Psychology with David Edward Walker

How does the legacy of colonialism impact American Indian mental health today? Does the Indian Health Service meet the needs of the people on tribal land? How are Native peoples revitalizing cultural traditions to reverse centuries of racism? David Walker, mixed-heritage Cherokee, psychologist working at the Yakama Nation,
and author of the award-winning novel Tessa's Dance, discusses healing the deep wounds of intergenerational trauma in Indian Country.
