Please tell us (in detail) about your event/conversation:

The elders in my community are committed to healing by addressing “root causes”.  They are planning for a community event, and in the initial preparation stages.  They identified that we have  to do this right, and focus on ourselves and our healing, then bring it to the community.

How will your event/conversation relate to healing and reconciliation?

The Elders conversation is about making sage for our young, and the next generation, by addressing difficulties topics such as sexual abuse.  They identify with and acknowledge that intergenerational trauma/abuse has had an impact on their lives.  They simply say that this is unacceptable, and it has to stop, now is the time, we all have to heal.
