In light of the crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP), this session will invite CSBG Tribal grant recipients to consider how to support cultural preservation, safety, and trauma prevention practices. Leadership from the Administration for Native Americans (ANA) will provide a reflection on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Persons Awareness Day. The featured speaker will be a Native MMIP family survivor who will present about the protective factors that are built into Indigenous traditional values and teachings — belonging, medicine wheel examples of balance and interconnectedness, cultural identity — and how Indigenous customs in ways of introducing themselves carry preventive measures, ceremony as prevention and recovery. The session will also discuss the accumulation of ceremony as an antidote to the accumulation of trauma.
