Transforming Lateral Violence To Lateral Kindness:
Indigenous Cultural Beliefs, Trauma-informed Knowledge & Lessons From Horse Nation
Colonization, oppression, and intergenerational trauma has affected how we see ourselves and how we interact with friends, relatives, co-workers, and those we serve. Internalized oppression manifests in lateral violence and the subsequent behaviors are destructive forces in all of our relationships – family, friends, community, and the workplace. Personal relationships are destroyed and community services/programs are ineffective or self-destruct. This workshop explores these dynamics, challenges participants to self-examination, and provides experiential opportunities that will support a personal and professional shift to lateral kindness.
Note: This workshop includes an equine-facilitated session that will take place in a heated riding arena located minutes from the hotel. This session offers participants an opportunity to learn lessons on how to communicate and respond to others in a manner consistent with indigenous cultural values and trauma-informed practices. Please join us in this unique experience to learn from our relatives, the Horse Nation. Transportation provided.
Who Should Attend? Everyone welcomed! This workshop is appropriate for advocates, mental health and social services staff, school faculty and staff, law enforcement, medical personnel and community members.  
The Indigenous Women's Justice Institute, Brenda Hill Consulting, Red Horse Healing and invited speaker, Sam High Crane look forward to sharing information, approaches and perspectives to support healing from violence in our families and tribal communities.
