Podcast helps uplift the importance of Indigenous resiliency
By Dan Ninham
The Tribal NEAR Science and Community Wisdom Project and Center for Prevention at Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Minnesota recently completed the second season of their podcast series called “Remembering Resilience.” The Tribal NEAR Project virtually hosted a “Remembering Resilience” conversation that included discussions about the podcast’s topics and themes related to wellness, healing and the resilience of tribal communities.
“We all have a story,” said Linsey McMurrin (Leech Lake Ojibwe), Director of Prevention Initiatives and Tribal Projects with FamilyWise Services. “We all have our struggles. Opening up the opportunity to learn more about these concepts both individually and communally is a form of empowerment. We talk about traumas we have all endured, yet the story does not end there. We want to lift up voices and stories and ideas that will continue to inspire each other to move through and beyond those traumas.”
