Native people are resilient - having gone through traumas across history with impacts that have devastated individuals, families and communities. The high rates of child abuse, domestic violence, suicide, alcoholism and other social ills affect our people today.
But there is hope.
Hope in a world where children are protected and happy, where families are free of violence, where no one has to know what it means to grieve for a loved one due to suicide, hope for strong healthy communities with people who lead with the heart of compassion, kindness and courage.
- The CBC for Tribes supports programs and communities with resources related to:
- Historical trauma and its impact
- Spirituality and wellness
- Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs)
- Food as medicine
It is time to create culturally relevant and sustainable interventions for our own communities, our families and individuals by building the capacity of all to strengthen our responses to once again live peaceful lives.
