Sacred Hoop Tribal Domestic Violence Coalition Events
Chi Miigwech to everyone who attended the 6th Annual Domestic Violence Symposium: Healing Generations!
This year’s symposium focused on Healing Generations in the efforts to end the cycle of violence in our families and communities, including how we as tribal programs can unite and further the movement to end violence against Native women.
We examined root causes of inter-generational trauma and lateral violence and their impact on tribal communities; while proactively working toward restorative measures rooted in our cultural teachings, developing new advocate training and tools to cope with vicarious trauma. There were opportunities to learn, network, provide feedback, and help the Sacred Hoop Coalition develop new materials.
