Elder respect is part of our culture so there is increased shame when we fail.
Listening Session participant
In many cultures, elders preserve traditions and share wisdom to help ensure community permanency and balance. Indigenous1 communities often hold elders in a unique and important social position. Elders are mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunties, uncles, brothers and sisters. They are also advisors, teachers, healers, spiritual leaders and connectors to the past and future.
Despite strong traditions, tribal communities have not been immune from abuse in later life. Education about its existence, and the design of culturally meaningful interventions, remains in its early stages.
Reclaiming What is Sacred: Addressing Harm to Indigenous Elders and Developing a Tribal Response to Abuse in Later Life is the result of a collaboration between the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life, Red Wind Consulting, Inc. and ISP Consults.
Shelter and Transitional Housing is an important response to safety and provides options for women who are seeking safety following domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking or dating violence. No one size fits any community. There are some basic ideas about the intent of shelter and transitional housing responses, yet our indigenous identity will go a long way to shaping what a shelter or transitional housing program looks like in the community.

Creating Sister Space is a new resource available for download that will assist Tribal and Native specific programs in the development of their shelter and transitional housing program.
“There’s a recognition that power comes from within. It comes from having knowledge and vision. The sun has power. The wind has power. We have the power to bring forth and nurture new life. That’s the power Mother Earth has. There’s the power of love.” (Washinawatok, 1995)
