Dr Kokayi is joined by a culture carrier of the Native American people, Frank Menusan, who shares how his reintegration into his own cultural path has aided himself as well as others. Highlighted in this program is the fact that modern medicineâ€™s suppression of other cultural streams of healing decreases the possibilities for healing to take place in those people who need medicine that comes out of these cultural technologies. The Native American journey has been particularly difficult when you consider that the Freedom of Religion Act for Native Americans was only passed in 1978. Frank Menusan clears up misconceptions about â€œdream catchersâ€ and shares other Native American healing technologies.
