Reclaiming What is Sacred: Addressing Harm to Indigenous Elders and Developing a Tribal Response to Abuse in Later Life


In 2015, the National Clearinghouse on Abuse in Later Life (NCALL) and Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) hosted a listening session with representatives from tribal governments and service providers and those that work closely with tribes, tribal domestic violence coalitions and federal responders. The gathering was an opportunity for Native people to inform the field about what abuse in later life looks like in tribal communities and how to address it. This report contains potential strategies, additional resources, and tools to enhance conversation and planning.
