NIWRC is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for tribal domestic violence programs and shelters to participate in a unique experiential training experience at Akwesasne with the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe. This peer to peer training will focus on the critical importance of incorporating cultural and trauma-informed approaches in our communities and will offer participants hands on training and peer led activities to see how this vibrant, cultural and trauma-informed tribal nation is working to end violence in their community.  Their vision statement is, “Working Together Today to Build a Better Tomorrow.”

During this two-day training, participants will meet with tribal leadership, cultural and spiritual leaders, social services, child welfare program, law enforcement, court personnel, and emergency shelter and domestic violence service providers as well as tribal coalition staff.  We will also tour the Akwesasne Cultural Center, the Freedom School and see how St. Regis Mohawk tribe have incorporated their traditional knowledge and teachings to build a traditional, cultural and trauma-informed community.  

Due to the remoteness of location and nature of training, opportunity is limited to the first 25 registrants.  Please don’t miss this outstanding training opportunity.  Registration fee is $50.
