Rural Counties Learning Exchange Cohort
October 26 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am PDTFree
Representatives from the California Office of Tribal Affairs (OTA) will facilitate a discussion around engaging tribal community partners in local child abuse prevention planning efforts. Partnering with your tribal community is critical in reducing local child abuse incidents and support our local families, through a collective impact approach. During this rural counties learning exchange, you will gain understanding on how to build effective collaborative engagement with your tribal partners. Bring your questions and learn through this interactive session more about the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), and together we will explore how to connect tribal families with needed local support system, even if tribes are out of state or unable to provide resources locally. Explore the impact of trauma on native communities, to promote a trauma-informed approach in building a collaborative relationship.
Participants will be able to learn and further understand tribal culture, to assist your organization in promoting programs and services through a cultural competence lens. Identify creative strategies to engage in building collaborative efforts with tribal representatives to create a space for healing, wellness, and community connections to support and strengthen families in rural communities.
