  • Created by Lynn Gehl, an Ally Bill of Responsibilities beginning with the two points;
    1. Do not act out of guilt, but rather out of a genuine interest in challenging the larger
    oppressive power structures
    2. Add text in parenthesis “Understand that they (an Ally’s needs) are secondary to the
    Indigenous people that they are working with and that they seek to serve. They (Allies)
    and their needs must take a back seat.”

  • In this webinar, Dr. Healey offered a model based on Inuit perspectives on health-related research epistemologies and methodologies to inform research. In particular, webinar participants were introduced to the Piliriqatigiinniq Community Health Research Model rooted in Inuit concepts and perspectives on health, wellness, and research. This approach may inspire other communities to develop similar frameworks.

  • This manual was created to specifically outline the process of building a Coordinated Community Response (CCR) in Native communities. This manual separates the creation of building a Coordinated Community Response into a framework for general use, suggesting ways to customize this practice to suit the needs of diverse communities.

  • Social Media can serve as the living voice of your organization and can convey your organization’s story, mission and drive to the general public and your intended audience. Each of your posts tells a piece of your organization’s story. Learn how to vet news stories, share resources, and the basics of what social media platforms are available. Find out how to take advanced approaches to social media such as positioning your page as a news source for your community, to reporting analytics and insights for funders, to seeing what works internally for your organizational needs. This webinar, provided by National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, will give tribal coalitions an overview of using social media to engage and develop their audience and best practices to aid in telling their organization’s story.
