Reporter Lee Romney brings us a documentary about a longtime couple from rural Northern California, near the Oregon border. They’ve each faced a domestic violence charge in state court, and they have a lot to share about their journey to wellness. The key: understanding where generational violence comes from by talking openly about the trauma of things like boarding schools, the Indian Slave Act, and massacres. Colonization intentionally and forcibly severed indigenous people from their land, traditions, and language here in California. That history created patterns of generational trauma and abuse. Now some leaders from tribes like the Yurok are trying to help both victims and perpetrators of domestic violence reconnect with the cultural practices that were taken away.
