PTSD AND NATIVE AMERICAN MEDICINE

Many Native American nations have ancient practices which can help to heal warriors from the traumas of war. This tradition continues today as Navajo/Dine Medicine man Albert Laughter works to bring his fellow veterans home – to themselves and to their communities and ceremonies.

Albert’s father did similar work with Native American veterans – using ceremony, talking circles and traditional medicine to heal wounded hearts. Albert works with veterans of many wars, setting up his ceremonial tipi on-site at a Veteran’s hospital in Arizona and making site visits throughout the Navajo territory. He understands that PTSD is a spiritual afflication, as much as it is emotional and physical illness.
