The world has changed, and ways of life have been put on hold. These are truly trying and difficult times for so many people. Tribal domestic violence advocates are struggling to find their footing and respond as best they can under the circumstances, given the lack of resources and tribal infrastructures as well as an increase in domestic violence. Indigenous people and Tribal Nations experience multiple levels of trauma, including Historical Trauma. All this contributes to the response to the current pandemic.
Attendees will hear from the California Department of Justice, California Tribal Families Coalition, and California Department of Social Services. This conference will provide Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) litigation and legislation updates and also take an in-depth look at different Tribes’ organizational approaches and how they are developing their infrastructure.
As Indian tribes implement enhanced sentencing authority through tribal courts, it is important to provide information relevant to the requirements of the Tribal Law & Order Act of 2010 in so far as judicial qualifications are concerned.
This is a two day in-person course targeted towards Tribal Justice System Personnel involved with code writing.
