Domestic Violence and Economic Abuse

One control tactic used by abuses involves controlling the finances of the household. Abusers may limit the survivor’s options by not allowing access to checking accounts, credit card, other sources of money or even financial independence. Our society tends to focus on getting the survivor away from the perpetrator, but we provide very little in the way of financial assistance to allow her to remain financially independent. This session will provide information about economic abuse and emerging practices or programs addressing this serious issue.

 

Protecting Our Women

Colonizing governments understood that to establish their control over Native nations, they had to work to eradicate tribal values that honored women and prohibited violence against women. Today, the pathways to ending violence against Native women must be grounded firmly in reconnecting with these tribal values. One Nation at a time, through community organizing efforts to reconnect with tribal values, we can change how we think about our responsibilities of protecting our women and implement concrete solutions.
