Hi Faye,

Ah I feel for you in that one - I know how connected you are with the land up there.

From your sharing above it sounds like not only are you feeling the impact of the hunting and disrespect of the land, but also the fact that you felt a connection with them to begin with. That can be especially impactful when you see a mirror of part of your identity in them - like seeing a part of yourself and then realising that it's not what you thought it was.

So perhaps to go deeper into your processing you could explore:

  1. The sense of betrayal
  2. The feeling of being violated

I wish you the best with it - let us know how it goes if you feel to do so.

Much love
