OVC in collaboration with OVW announces the release of a new video educational series developed for federal, state, local, tribal victim service providers, criminal justice professionals and others who work with Alaska Native victims of DV, SA and HT.  The videos in the series are designed to:

  • increase awareness about the origins, prevalence, and types of violence committed against Alaska Natives.
  • identify first responders to Alaska Native victims of crime, including Alaska State Troopers, Village Police Officers, Village Public Safety Officers, community leaders, victim advocates, elders, medical personnel, substance abuse counselors, mental health providers, the faith community, and allied professionals.
  • illustrate the challenges faced by Alaska Native victims and the critical role that culture and tradition play in both the well-being of Alaska Natives and in helping victims and communities heal.
  • present specific techniques and strategies for enhancing responses to and the investigation of violence against Alaska Natives.
  • illustrate—through case studies and personal experiences—how local customs, traditions, and best practices underscore the need for a multidisciplinary, multijurisdictional, collaborative response to violence committed against Alaska Natives.
You can see the video series at this link.
