We cannot proceed without noting our recent loss of CJ Doxtater. Some of us have known him for many years and some of us met him only recently and more briefly. For anyone who did not know of CJ’s passing, we share the sad news and his beautiful obituary: Cleveland “CJ” Doxtater, 71, Allouez, began his spirit walk after Covid 19 on Wednesday November 4, 2020. Read more at this link. We found that Eagle Poem by Joy Harjo speaks to our memory of CJ. CJ’s spirit was at the heart of Bridging Tribal and Nontribal Advocacy, and a dedication of this series to him will be part of our experience together on January 14.
This webinar will examine the difficulties in understanding and communicating from varied cultural standpoints. Issues that may confuse or interfere with the healing intent of domestic abuse, sexual assault and shelter programs will be considered. We will include a question and answer session with panelists Eileen Hudon, Corrine Sanchez of Tewa Women United, and Alice Skenandore of Wise Women Gathering Place, all of whom are experienced in bridging tribal and nontribal advocacy.
This is the third webinar in the series, Bridging Tribal and Non-Tribal Advocacy, presented together by American Indians Against Abuse, End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin, WI Coalition Against Sexual Assault, and the WI Department of Children and Families.
