Weaving Our Wisdom by Decolonizing Our Work: Tuesday April 6, 2021 | 11:00 am CDT. This online session will examine some of the current habits that impact our daily lives through our organizations, community structures, and the ways that we move through the world. We will explore how we have taken on harmful attitudes and behaviors that do not reflect our values as Native people. We will create space to reflect on how we can decolonize our own individual practices to make change for our communities by weaving together our collective wisdom to end gender-based violence.  Presenters: Nicole Matthews, Executive Director and Guadalupe Lopez, Elevate|Uplift Program Coordinator, Minnesota Indian Women’s Sexual Assault Coalition.

Sexual Assault in Intimate Partner Relationships: Tuesday April 27, 2021 | 11:00 am CDT. More than 35% of women and 30% of men report sexual violence, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner at some point in their lives. In American Indian/Alaska Native populations, that number nearly doubles. In this session, we will discuss the prevalence of intimate partner sexual assault, the challenges associated with reporting and the specific healthcare and safety needs that should be addressed for these individuals. Presented by: Jennifer Pierce-Weeks, RN, SANE-A, SANE-P, Chief Executive Officer for the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN).

Unique Legal Issues for Urban Victims Webinar: Red Wind Consulting, Inc.

April 22 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Native Americans are a nearly invisible population in urban areas across the United States and they possess a unique legal status that many non-Natives have little to no understanding about. Sadly, this makes working with this population potentially quite harmful. This session will provide an overview of tribal jurisdiction and relevant laws that impact tribal life both on and off tribal lands. We will identity common legal issues that can impact the way a person would provide services and how to begin identifying when to seek additional expertise so that no harm is done to a victim by a service provider. Resources will be discussed that can be accessed to assist programs when working with unique legal issues.
