This mini review of literature focuses on intergenerational, historical and chosen traumas. I advise that the three be utilized as critical tools for inquiry in further problematizing the genealogy of schooling, in particular the deculturalization of minoritized groups through coercive assimilation such as Americanization and Anglo conformity. Through such tools of inquiry as a society we will be able to better understand normalized traumas that continue to reproduce social inequity within the context of schooling.
