CHALLENGE #03-2023

Women of Nations - Eagle's Nest Shelter St. Paul, Minnesota
Women of Nations is one of very few non-reservation based, culturally specific domestic violence programs in the United States. While they serve all women and children fleeing domestic violence, they provide specific services for Native American women and children. Native American spirituality, healing ceremonies and cultural customs are used to facilitate the healing process. Women who arrive at Women of Nations have the opportunity to participate in sweat lodges, discuss their experiences in talking circles, celebrate moon and pipe ceremonies, and remain connected with their Native American community. These connections to Native American cultural traditions empower their clients to leave unhealthy relationships while remaining connected to their cultural heritage.

Challenge #40-2022 is Complete

 Fremont County Alliance

Riverton, WY
At the Fremont Alliance, they feel that there is incredible healing
power in the sharing of stories. The power of these stories lies in
changing the story from one of victimization to one of survival,
strength and courage. When survivors Stand Up, Speak Up and Listen Up, they are then able to take back control in their own terms and are no longer defined by the story itself itself. FCA frequently has Native American women from the Shoshone and Arapaho tribes in shelter. They love handmade items!
