Magic of Cinema: Healing the Warrior’s Heart
Please join Peninsula College at Forks and Magic of Cinema for a screening of Healing the Warrior’s Heart, a
documentary examining Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder through the lens of Native American tradition and ceremony.
Focusing on practices from the Navajo, Ute, Zuni, Crow, and Blackfeet Nations, the film explores an understanding
of PTSD as “a poisoning of the spirit,” and the ways Nativen healers and spiritual leaders bring “cleansing, blessing,
and soul healing” to men and women returning to their communities from America’s wars. The film includes
interviews and scenes with spiritual leaders, veterans from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Elder veterans, family
members, and tribal leaders.
