THE HOLOCAUST OF A FORGOTTEN PEOPLE: Grief and Unresolved Trauma

For this second installment of Race Talks, Brandon Cruz, a current intern and staff member for the Welsey foundation, spoke on the unresolved trauma his family has experienced. As a member of the Patowatomie tribe, he speaks of the pain and hurt the Church and the USA have caused his people over the years, and how it is still felt today. Afterwards, the floor was open to any of the congregation who had questions about his experience, whether or not responsibility falls to us for our ancestors sins, and how we reconcile evil actions of those who call themselves Christian with the message of our Gospel.
