Healing the Warrior’s Heart examines the emotional trauma of war through the prism of Native American tradition and ceremony.
The program reveals the central role that military service plays in Native life and explores the spiritual traditions that help returning American Indian soldiers reintegrate into society.
These traditions hold lessons for the nation as we seek to bring comfort and healing to veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD.
Healing the Warrior’s Heart is produced by the Western Folklife Center.
