Healing After Domestic Violence
Join YANA Panel members as we share personal stories of survival and holistic techniques to support you in the sacred process of reclaiming yourself in healing.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. Domestic violence goes beyond physical abuse. Isolation, intimidation, insults, gaslighting, humiliation, stalking, and threats, as well as the minimizing or deflection of these behaviors, are also hallmarks of this type of violence. On a typical day, there are more than 20,000 phone calls placed to domestic violence hotlines nationwide. Unfortunately, several of us on the panel have witnessed and survived domestic violence abuse.
Our webinar also will be held on Indigenous People's Day. Native American survivors are twice as likely to experience rape or sexual assault, two and a half times more likely to experience violent crimes, and five times more likely to be victims of homicide in their lifetimes compared to all other races in the country.
Our panelist, Anna Smith (Lakota Sioux, enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe), will be speaking on how generational and cultural factors contribute to Domestic violence, as well as talk about the White Buffalo Calf Woman Society and Missing or Murdered Indigenous Women.
We will be donating proceeds to the White Buffalo Calf Women's Society, which is a 501c3 Native Non-Profit organization that provides services to victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, and stalking. They offer safe shelter to victims of violent crimes on the Rosebud Reservation. https://www.wbcws.org
It can be a lonely journey, but You Are Not Alone. Join YANA Panel members as we share personal stories of survival and holistic techniques to support you in the sacred process of reclaiming yourself in healing.
