Why Are We Still Here?
This conference has been held for many years now, so why are we still here? This session will look at what we are doing and ask why American Indian and Alaska Native children live in communities with alarming high rates of poverty, homelessness, drug abuse, alcoholism, suicide, and victimization.

Workshop #1: Native American Gangs and Their Connections to National Gangs (part one)
Since 2007, the Native American Drug and Gang Initiative (NADGI) Task Force, has addressed the crime associated with gang and drug activity in the Wisconsin Native American communities. The NADGI covers 9-10 Tribal Reservations spanning most of the state of Wisconsin. Although the gangs on the reservations hold many elements associated with Native American culture, they hold strong ties to larger gangs in urban areas. These affiliations have led to a steady trade in drugs, weapons, gang violence and human trafficking. We will take a deeper dive into the unique character of Native American gangs in Wisconsin and their relationships with other gangs in the large metropolitan areas. Past and present criminal investigations will be referenced to illustrate these points and also offer strategies that have had success in combating this activity.

10:30 AM - 11:20 AM

Workshop #3: Adverse Childhood Experiences
"Identify, Interview, and Interrupt" Experiences in childhood matter. Numerous research studies have shown how childhood stress and trauma can impact adult health. The Ace Study is the largest study investigating the health and social effects of negative childhood experiences. Now that we have the research, what can we do about it? The cycle of violence, generational poverty and abuse, homelessness, substance abuse, incarceration, perpetration and victimization of violence are all related to ACE’s. Strategies such as identification and assessment, reducing risk and exposure and nurturing resiliency and skill building are effective interventions. Changing the negative course that many children are on is our best way to prevent abuse in future generations. This presentation will increase your knowledge of trauma and provide ways to work with children, families and communities to reduce the impact of trauma.

Preparing for a Critical Incident in Native American Communities
Learn about experience- and evidence-based practices for managing the multiple and diverse needs of Native American communities in times of crisis. This diversity is a challenge to many response structures because the fluidity of the crisis, identified needs and the unfolding response create a moving target for priorities. Lessons learned from past incidents indicate that through advanced planning (which includes the establishment of victim assistance protocols), and by developing and maintaining multidisciplinary partnerships, communities are better prepared to engage a holistic approach to ensure that each victim’s needs are met. In this interactive workshop, resources will be shared along with answers to the following crisis response questions which are far from simple.

Marysville Pilchuck High School Shooting
" A Teen, A Text, A Tragedy". On October 24, 2014, a 15-year old freshman student shot five other students, fatally wounding four of them and himself at Marysville Pilchuck High School in Marysville, WA. The shooter invited several students, whom were all his friends to meet him in the cafeteria via text message. Minutes prior, he sent a group text to his family and families of his would-be victims to apologize for his actions, explaining his motive and included funeral plans. This session will discuss the initial call to law enforcement and the coordinated response to the incident.

Are We Heading in the Right Direction or is it Time to Circle Back?
If the powerful government of the United States, cannot protect the poorest, most disenfranchised and most vulnerable of all people; children, are we going in the right direction? This session will look at the restructuring of Native societies and discuss the need to reinvigorate the cultures of Native America; cultures that have lain dormant for hundreds of years, cultures that need to be re-seeded, nurtured, weeded, and watered so once again we can harvest the beauty of our spirit.
