4th Annual American Indian Domestic Violence Awareness Day of Unity

  • Southern Plains Indian Museum 801 East Central Boulevard Anadarko, OK, 73005 United States (map)

The Native Alliance Against Violence welcomes you to visit the 4th Annual American Indian Domestic Violence Day of Unity at the Southern Plains Indian Museum. This informative gathering will help raise awareness around issues involving domestic violence in Indian country. Several tribes will be in attendance, as well as special speakers, cultural entertainment, and artwork by the tribal domestic violence programs themselves.

The NAAV is taking a different approach in obtaining a venue for our American Indian Domestic Violence Awareness Day of Unity in October.  Instead of us selecting a venue, we are encouraging tribal programs who want to share their program’s successes and challenges to serve as a host venue for the event.  It provides us and sister tribal programs an opportunity to gain a first hand look at where tribal programs are geographically, to learn more about them culturally, and to be aware of what programs they offer.

For this first venture, the Apache Tribe of Oklahoma Violence Free Living Program has volunteered to serve as host.  We appreciate Sonya Spray, Interim Director for taking this on and inviting us and sister tribal programs into her community.

This day of unity will allow the community to interact with their tribal domestic violence programs in a welcoming and approachable atmosphere. Join us to learn more about what impact you can have on domestic violence awareness.
