Advocate Training & Support in Colorado
ENHANCING OUR INDIGENOUS STRENGTH AND BEAUTY ~ ENVISION A WORLD WITHOUT VIOLENCE
Haseya means “She Rises” in Navajo and describes the spirit of how we address violence against Indian women.
Urban native victims of domestic violence and sexual assault face unique challenges that are not always recognized by non-native advocates. The way non-native providers respond may not “fit” for native survivors, making them feel uncomfortable or put off. American Indian victims of domestic or sexual violence may also want or need to engage in traditional forms of healing, following an incident of violence. And for cultural reasons, an urban Indian victim/survivor may not want to allow law enforcement to collect evidence from them.
Our Haseya Advocate Program helps Native victims and survivors in El Paso County rise up from the oppressive nature of domestic and sexual violence.
