Financial abuse in Indian Country is prevalent but its scope is not fully understood.  This webinar addresses the unique challenges and barriers in serving tribal communities by providing advocates with a general understanding about relevant laws and tribal codes. This webinar also provides useful tools and information on existing resources that are culturally oriented. Our speakers include Cynthia LaCounte, Director of the Office for American Indian, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiian Programs (ACL/AOA); Dr. Jacque Gray, Director of the National Indigenous Elder Justice Initiative (NIEJI); and Sarah Dewees, Senior Director of Research, Policy & Asset Building Programs of the First Nations Development Institute.
