Some communities and agencies still reinforce harmful stereotypes and are not given the opportunity to “decolonize” and “unlearn” critical pieces of what adds to systemic racism which creates barriers and limited access to services.  This mindset is also reinforced by laws and policies. The presentation will address the barriers and safety concerns tribal victims come across.  The discussion will cover myths & stereotypes, sovereignty and autonomy, culture as healing, and resources. This will include practices and ways your agency or community can be good relatives
