Creating a Safe Space To Grow: A Guide for Tribal Child and Youth Advocacy
Whatever the future holds, do not forget who you are. Teach your children, teach your children's children, and then teach their children also. Teach them the pride of a great people ... A time will come again when they will celebrate together with joy. When that happens, my spirit will be there with you.
Chief Leschi, Nisqually
In a lot of ways, Tribal Advocates are teachers. You teach individuals how to cope with trauma and access resources. You educate communities about the impact of violence. You show institutions problematic practices that create barriers. Advocacy is a multitude of activities that show support. This guidebook is intended to help Advocates in tribal communities with supportive responses to young victims of Domestic Violence, Teen Dating Violence, Sexual Assault, Stalking, and Sex Trafficking. Effective child and youth advocacy must include education and support for their unique needs. Young victims need safety, understanding, strategies to decrease the negative impact, offender accountability, and a safe space to grow.
The Guidebook: Creating a Safe Space to Grow is available here for download.

Shelter and Transitional Housing is an important response to safety and provides options for women who are seeking safety following domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or dating violence. No one size fits any community. There are some basic ideas about the intent of shelter and transitional housing responses, yet our indigenous identity will go a long way to shaping what a shelter or transitional housing program looks like in the community.

Creating Sister Space is a new resource available for download that will assist Tribal and Native specific programs in the development of their shelter and transitional housing program.
“There’s a recognition that power comes from within. It comes from having knowledge and vision. The sun has power. The wind has power. We have the power to bring forth and nurture new life. That’s the power Mother Earth has. There’s the power of love.” (Washinawatok, 1995)
