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.
