In this presentation, participants will learn about the Guidance for Federal Departments and Agencies on Indigenous Knowledge issued by the White House on November 30, 2022. See https://www.whitehouse.gov/wp-content/uploads/2022/12/OSTP-CEQ-IK-Guidance.pdf. The guidance offers support for federal departments and agencies in recognizing and including Indigenous Knowledge in research, policy and other decision making. Tribal knowledge of this guidance is important to make certain that their work with the federal government agencies requires acknowledgment of these principles.
In addition, participants will learn about promoting, evaluating and sustaining Tribal-based practices in their work. Tribes and their citizens have utilized culturally specific practices which reduce risk factors and increase protective factors for a wide variety of behavioral and health problems for hundreds of years.
Presenters will be: Delight Satter (Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde), Senior Health Scientist, Office of the Director, National Center for STLT Public Health Infrastructure and Workforce at the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, and Caroline Cruz (Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs), Health and Human Services General Manager for the Confederated Tribes of Warm Springs and one of the main authors for Oregon Tribal Based Practices.
This webinar is available to all federal, state, local and Tribal juvenile justice and social service professionals, as well as those interested in understand more about Indigenous Knowledge and Tribal-based practices. There is no tuition charge for this training.
