For the past 35 years, Dr. Gibson has been dedicated to the craft and science of Historical Trauma recovery among our Native Peoples all around Turtle Island. Dr. Gibson developed two intergenerational trauma recovery models, Somatic Archaeology© and Generational Brainspotting™. She is the author of My Body, My Earth, The Practice of Somatic Archaeology, and My Body, My Breath Card Deck, a Tool for Transformation, co-designed with Ola Faye Thompson. Dr. Gibson’s techniques have been field tested for over 25 years with amazing effectiveness. As a mixed-blood woman, Dr. Gibson's life experience and ceremonial life guided her to develop these healing techniques. She has learned how to simplify the complexity of trauma recovery through the inspiration of her spiritual grandmothers and the four worlds of creation. She believes we all have an amazing capacity to reconcile personal and cultural suffering when we have the proper skills. Dr. Gibson is the co-founder and Executive Director of Freedom Lodge nonprofit, and in 2015 opened the Black Hills Historical Trauma Research & Recovery Center in Rapid City, SD.
