Join us for 2 1/2 days developing our combined creative energy to strengthen
our work with children and youth!

Conference Overview
American Indian and Alaska Native children and youth are exposed to Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault, Teen Dating Violence, and Stalking at alarming rates. It is often challenging to find healing options in tribal communities. A successful recovery process must involve holistic and age appropriate responses throughout a survivor’s lifetime.
