Many Native people, young and old, have survived a lifetime of violence that profoundly impacts their lives in many ways. This workshop begins with a look at the root causes and layers of violence/trauma in Indian Country, and their impact, including substance abuse and domestic violence. The major focus will be on culturally-based, trauma-informed responses that facilitate the healing process for victims/survivors, and self-care for advocates and other helpers. Programming for Native youth and offenders, including equine therapy, is an inspirational part of this workshop. Opportunities to participate in conversations and activities that can be used in virtually any setting, occur throughout the three days together!
