Discussion of generational trauma research postponed because of pandemic
Community discussion surrounding a study of generational trauma has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Sealaska Heritage Institute and the Hoonah Indian Association are collaborating on a study that looks at the potential impact of historical trauma on Alaska Native people.
Participants were recruited beginning in 2019.
Researchers from the University of Illinois in Champaign-Urbana were scheduled to visit Hoonah and Juneau to discuss the preliminary results and next steps.
But those visits will be postponed this year out of safety concerns.
