Seminole Tribe To Host First Trauma-Focused Symposium
The idea had been brewing for some time in 2019-2020 Miss Indian World Cheyenne Kippenberger’s mind – a Tribal conference that addressed issues of trauma. She’d spoken about such subjects during her reign as Miss Florida Seminole.She wasn’t sure exactly how to go about bringing all the pieces together, but the current Miss Indian World soon found a way.
“The vision was to create a safe space to heal the many traumas that we as Native people have suffered from for many generations,” Kippenberger said. “After this safe space was created: how do we encourage healing in a healthy, positive way?”
