Tribal Advocates are the backbone of the response to end both domestic violence and sexual violence within their tribes. The work of the advocate will create the change we need in our communities.
Victoria Ybanez, Red Wind’s Executive Director
Red Wind developed the National Tribal Advocate Center to fill a void in Indian Country and created comprehensive native-specific training designed to enhance the capacity of tribal advocates. Each of the 40-hour advocate training will provide tribal advocates with a native-specific approach to providing advocacy that will strengthen their ability to work effectively with those they serve.
Red Wind also provides a combination of Advanced Tribal Advocate trainings.
2022 Training Schedule
Red Wind schedule for fall of 2022 SATI October 24 - 28, 2022 DATI November 7 - 11, 2022
The Tribal Advocate Trainings are designed to help build key competencies for Tribal Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Advocates. Competencies engrained throughout the training include: Foundations of Advocacy, Centering Culture in Advocacy, Advocate Bias, Trauma and its Impacts, Crisis Intervention, Safety Planning, and more.
Our Advocate training engages in the use of critical thinking skills to enhance learning. Each training is interactive and teaches advocates the range of skills and concepts needed to work effectively with Native victims and survivors in their communities.
Process for bringing a training to your area Red Wind regularly receives request to provide a 40-hour training locally for Tribes. To provide detailed information to start the discussion about how to make it happen. Check out this flyer about the process.
