Mending the Sacred Hoop

Mending the Sacred Hoop is a Native owned and operated non-profit 501(c) 3 organization that exists to address violence against Native women and works to end it. We organize to address issues surrounding violence against American Indian/Alaska Native women in our home community of Duluth, MN, throughout the State of Minnesota, and work with Tribes and Native communities nationally that are addressing the issues of domestic and sexual violence, dating violence, and stalking in their communities. We provide training to strengthen Tribal and Native community responses to these crimes, including the advocacy and systems responses, community understanding and awareness, engaging men in the work to end violence against women, and coordinating community responses that provide for women’s safety and uphold offender accountability.
