Honoring Our Spirit Tribal Campus Training and Technical Assistance
Red Wind is developing a website specific for Tribal College Campus (TCC) Training and Technical Assistance.
This website will be a place where resources that support TCC's holistic response to sexual assault can be accessed, including webinars, links to relevant experts/websites, and materials. Check back as the website evolves. A link will be found here.
Tribal colleges and universities create a space where we can honor our spirits by learning more about our culture while also empowering us to gain more knowledge to create a better, more just world. Red Wind can provide training and technical assistance to all tribal colleges and universities developing and/or implementing a holistic response to sexual assault. Our technical assistance includes:
1-to-1 assistance tailored to the needs of your tribal campus;
National sexual assault conference for Tribal colleges and universities;
Webinars covering relevant topics;
On-site visits providing planning, developing strategies, assisting with developing your holistic and culturally specific sexual assault response on campus; and
Development of materials to support the Tribal Campus work.
We are pleased to announce the release of a website dedicated to supporting Tribal Colleges and Universities (TCUs) in developing their holistic responses to sexual assault. Honoring Our Spirit, Tribal College Campus Technical Assistance website is a place where Tribal campuses can go to access resources and information on how to support their work addressing sexual assault, how to participate in webinars, and download materials. Tribal campuses can also make requests to Red Wind Consulting to receive customized consultation, training, and support to their campus with no fees charged to them. The website is located at https://tribalcampus.org.

“Because of Tribal Colleges, we are no longer one generation away from losing our languages; we are one generation away from saving them.”

Tribal colleges and universities are the cornerstone for preserving our tribal communities. While there is some research demonstrating the prevalence and dynamics surrounding sexual violence on college campuses, there is little research on sexual violence within tribal college campuses. What we do know is our people experience sexual violence at much larger rates than non-Native people (NIJ). We also know that access to traditional practices and life-ways are critical for our healing and is often the most effective means available.
