Foundation and Key Principles: Strengthening the Role of Advocacy in Indian Country Workshop

Event Type
Event Date
Tuesday, July 25, 2023, 08:00AM
- Thursday, July 27, 2023

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/intimate partner violence, particularly on Native women. Key topics include basic advocacy skills, confidentiality, and elements of shelter and other safe spaces. Advocates’ role in social change initiatives outside of shelter doors is also addressed. A special session on COVID-19 mitigation best practices and indoor air mitigation tools has been added to the agenda this year, given the ongoing pandemic. Discussion and interactive exercises are planned throughout this workshop.
