Event Details

“Foundation and Key Principles: Strengthening the Role of Advocacy in Indian Country”
April 21- 23, 2020 (2.5 days)
Albuquerque, NM


The foundation of advocates’ role in Indian Country is built upon our indigenous understanding of our relationships and roles as Relatives in the context of historical and ongoing dynamics of colonization. The key principles of advocacy come from indigenous cultural beliefs and values, and encompass concepts of resilience, trauma-informed approaches and sovereignty. These are the themes of this workshop  with a focus on the dynamics and impact of battering, particularly on Native women and what advocacy skills, including confidentiality and the basics of shelter programming, are needed in ordered to meet the needs of Native victims of domestic violence. Advocates’ role in social change initiatives outside of shelter doors is also addressed. Discussion and interactive exercises are planned throughout this workshop.
