Day one of this workshop explores the historical root and cultural causes for violence against indigenous women and children to frame discussion about the dynamics of domestic violence, provides a historical and cultural foundation for respectful, trauma-informed response. Day two explores how children are affected when they see and hear domestic violence, addressing the following questions: How can we as advocates create comfort and protection for children in shelter and other environments? How can we act as good relatives in providing information and support to women as mothers?
The cost and consequences to individuals, families, and communities is great. Indigenous life ways provide a path to heal and end the violence. Please join this important discussion.
