Education

Ages 17 to 18

Warnings: M (discussions of violence, sexual abuse, some foul language ‘prick’). Ideal for classroom discussions, research and essays about intergenerational trauma, criminal justice, and Indigenous restorative justice. Consider the narratives of childhood experiences shared in the film and discuss how childhood trauma can shape the fate of an adult if nurturing, healing and support are not in place. Research the contexts that influence the overrepresentation of Indigenous people in the criminal justice system. What is restorative justice and how is it being used within the legal system today? Can preventative social structures supported by government and community initiatives help reshape the criminal justice system? How can reconnecting with original cultural ways of being help in healing those who suffer from trauma and intergenerational trauma?
