Decolonisation and peacemaking with Harley Eagle.

It was wonderful to have Harley Eagle visit us in Perth in late January. His talks on decolonisation, cultural integrity, healing of intergenerational trauma, restorative justice and peacemaking were informative and deeply moving.

Harley’s talks created a bridge between the past and the present, and between Aboriginal and non-aboriginal people. His information brought a greater understanding of the colonist mindset and why racism exists in our world. Each one of us was invited into a deeply personal exploration of decolonisation as well as a collective healing journey. A list of additional resources and some highlights are provided below.

Nicely summarised, Kelly! After Harley’s talk, I found an interesting program talking about Oxytocin and felt it had real relevance to the points he made around parenting (that is not overly controlling and protective) and the skill of comforting children to help them to develop coping skills. The use of alcohol/drugs may be sought for comfort that was missing in childhood due to being taken away from parents, or the stolen generation not learning the skills at their parent’s knees.

No matter who we are we have a direct ancestral linage to this wisdom and mother earth connection. The new sciences reveal this pathway and provide additional information.
