Diane Glancy and Post Genocide Trauma Stress Syndrome
The main characteristic is the PTSS developed by Indians in general and Indian women in particular after the genocide and the locking up of the remnants of this nation in reservations. They will luckily escape them.
The result is a strange frustration at having lost a culture, a territory, a style, a life, and the feeling that they are like immobile testimonies of the past while the land under their feet is running away, is being pulled away like a tablecloth from a table but with absolutely no care not to break the plates and dishes.
It is this frightening loss and feeling of being betrayed by the Gods, or only one and this time Christian, the whites and their promises, by fate and history, if history exists, expecting and waiting for the seventh generation to come and liberate the nation.
These plays are already slightly old but fundamentally nothing essential has changed since year 2000, even after reparations were paid to the reservations under the presidency of Barack Obama.
