‘My Family’s Story’ by Wazza Jones

This blog post was submitted by Wazza Jones for The Carrolup Story website I have been running with John Stanton.

‘Here is a film clip from The Healing Foundation that helps us understand why many of our Bibbullmun / Noongar people and our communities are broken.

This is My Dad’s RIP story, my sister’s story, my story and our family’s story.

Yes, life is not easy and everyone is dealing with something, but many of us are also dealing with what happened to our parents, our grandparents, etc… This makes simple things in life that much harder to deal with than what they should be.

All people hold differing levels of Intergenerational trauma in their DNA. However, when it is only a generation ago that extremely traumatic events occurred, the Intergenerational trauma and its effects are often more visibly obvious.

You will need to turn on the sound at the bottom right of the film clip. Please read the description below the film clip.’ Wazza Jones
