Nationalism and Collective Guilt Predict Attitudes Towards Americas’ Past Infractions

Presentation Type

Poster Presentation

Abstract

University students completed an author-generated questionnaire on their perceptions of atrocities against indigenous populations. Collective guilt predicted support for reconciliation with Indigenous Americans, while glorification of the United States predicted opposition to such efforts. The research suggests that barriers continue to exist on reconciling with America’s past.
