2 Question that began our journey How do Native American elders continue to persevere each day and from what or where do they draw their determination to continue living? How can we share that with our native youth so they may become elders.

5 Resilience Research: Focusing on Individual vs Community Strengths Resilience research conceptualized as a process defined by access to and effective use of protective influences: includes individual internal characteristics, external support from family and community/culture. Cultural Resilience: building, maintaining, and nurturing those relationships that are a source of strength that helps people confront the challenges of life. Family support systems, caring communities, strong identities, spirtuality, cultural values, worldview, ceremonies, traditions Community identity versus individual identify: clans
6 Protective Factors in Resilience: Self, Family, Culture Storytelling =Intergenerational memories: The family holds values, customs, traditions and memories that guide a person s actions throughout their lives. Family/community transmit cultural identity to their children and future generations. Culture is a key factor in developing personal resilience. Culture links people to family, home, tradition, feeling part of something intergenerational, a community=a collective experience Family, mentors, kin network guide a person to develop selfesteem, self-reliance, confidence and efficacy by modeling cultural appropriate behaviors, storytelling and sharing ceremonies.
7 Scale asks children to answer 20 questions: Do you know where your grandparents grew up? Do you know where your mom and dad went to high school? Do you know where your parents met? Do you know an illness or something really terrible that happened in your family? The more children knew about their family s history (ups & downs) the more they were resilient: the stronger their sense of control over their lives, the higher their self-esteem and more successfully they believed their families functioned. Strong intergenerational self: they know they belong to something bigger than themselves = collective experience. Sense-making: the building of a narrative that explains what the group is about. Do You Know? Scale Bruce Feiler, The Stories That Bind Us. New York Times. Accessed March 17,2013.
8 Narratives of Resilience Focus on the Transmission of Resilience along with the Transmission of Trauma: First is confronting the historical trauma. Second is understanding the trauma. Third is releasing the pain of historical trauma. Fourth is transcending the trauma. (Brave Heart, M. Y. H., Chase, J., Elkins, J., & Altschul, D. B. 2011) Sharing stories is a traditional native practice that provides a vehicle for learning and healing. Narratives grounded within a strengths-based perspective emphasize how family members are successful in overcoming difficulties and remaining strong in the face of traumatic circumstances or change. if you don t know your past, you don t know your future.
9 Resilience and American Indian adolescents: Measures variables of school success (LaFromboise et al.,2006 and Whitesell et al., 2009.) Positive relationship among enculturation and resilience in addition to familial, communal and school influences among reservation adolescents (LaFromboise et al.,2006 and 2010) Social Support, rather than enculturation, influences resilience in urban American Indian adolescents (Stiffman et al.2007 and Stumblingbear-Riddle and Romans) Results: A prominent sense of culture in family and community could serve as positive force for reservation-dwelling American Indians.
10 Resilience and Elders Wisdom of the Elders: Healing With The Heroes Journey Model. To recover the loss of cultural traditions and family structure across generations, Wisdom of the Elders, Inc. (WISDOM) has produced the Discovering Our Story Project, and is sharing videorecorded stories of resilient Native Americans. Resilience and Stereotyping: The Experience of Native American Elders Resilience must be studied and understood within the context of NA worldview Resilience is embedded in the culture. Native elders attain their strength and resilience from each other, families, relatives and communities. Resilience comes from a legacy of survival passed down by the ancient ones. Wisdom of the Elders. Transcending Historical Trauma. Accessed April 1, Resilience and Stereotyping: The Experience of Native American Elders
