Summary:

NCALL staff joined Victoria Ybanez of Red Wind Consulting, for a webinar discussing the themes of a paper, Reclaiming What is Sacred: Addressing Harm to Indigenous Elders and Developing a Tribal Response to Abuse in Later Life. This paper, a resource for tribes and villages on how to create meaningful responses to abuse in later life, identifies specific guiding philosophies, cultural considerations, and potential action steps tribes and villages might wish to do when addressing abuse in later life in their communities. The back of the paper also includes a number of tools to enhance conversation and planning such as: sample stories; tips for holding a listening session; scenarios for community and system consideration; scenarios for thinking about elder abuse and elder protection; areas of inquiry; a questionnaire for collecting input; and the Abuse in Later Life Power and Control Wheel. Presenters: Bonnie Brandl and Juanita Davis, NCALL and Victoria Ybanez, Red Wind Consulting, Inc.
