GREEN BAY – Dr. Crystal Lepscier, Ed. D, was looking for a way to help other Indigenous students navigate their way through microaggression racism while working on her dissertation. For her, it was about reconnecting with traditional Indigenous ways, such as by learning how to make moccasins and then teaching that skill to others. Reconnecting to one’s culture can be effective in addressing “racial battle fatigue,” Lepscier argued in her dissertation. “It’s about becoming grounded in who you are and exploring your identity as a way to address this (racism),” she said.
