Webinar: Reflections on the Movement: Lessons from Tillie Black Bear in Celebration of Her Birthday

This webinar brings together long-time, nationally renowned advocates Karen Artichoker, Rita Smith, and Barbara Hart to talk about the early years of the movement to end violence against women, and the culturally centered teachings of Tillie Black Bear that continue to influence indigenous advocates to this day. The work of all three of these women began before the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (1984), so their voices bring a grassroots activist perspective that is often missing but integral to advocacy and social change.

Webinar: Providing Safety for Domestic Violence Survivors in the Time of a Pandemic

The hardships imposed by COVID-19 are numerous, impacting advocates as individuals and their ability to provide advocacy, resources and shelter to domestic violence survivors. Stay-At-Home orders, social distancing and the other necessary steps intended to offer protection from COVID-19, often escalate the danger to victims of domestic violence and create barriers to safety.

Webinar: Trauma-Informed Advocacy in the Time of a Pandemic

Our whole world has changed, our whole way of life has been put on hold. These are truly trying and difficult times for so many people. Tribal domestic violence advocates are struggling to find their footing and respond as best they can under the circumstances, given the lack of resources, tribal infrastructures and an increase in domestic violence. Indigenous people and Tribal Nations experience multiple levels of trauma, including Historical Trauma. All this contributes to our response to the current pandemic.

Webinar: Tribal Consultation on Violence Against Indian Women (VAWA 2013, Section 903)

VAWA 2005 requires the DOJ, HHS, and DOI to engage in formal consultation with Indian tribes on an annual basis to address concerns that impact the safety of Indian women at the broadest level. Participation in this nation-to-nation consultation is critically important for tribal leaders to dialogue with government officials about solutions and strategies to address issues related to violence against Native women.

Webinar: Missing and Murdered Native Women and Girls - National Day of Action, May 5, 2020

During the period of 1979 through 1992, homicide was the third-leading cause of death of Indian females aged 15 to 34, and 75 percent were killed by family members or acquaintances. In 2005, the movement for safety of Native women resulted in the inclusion of the “Safety for Indian Women” title within the Violence Against Women Act. A study released by the U.S. Department of Justice has found that in some tribal communities, American Indian women face murder rates that are more than 10 times the national average.
