Annotation: This seven-part video series with a companion resource guide provides examples of successful programs and practices used to help drug-endangered Native youth heal from trauma.
Abstract: This video series, which was produced in collaboration with tribal and Federal partners, presents first-person stories and Native cultural practices from across the Nation. The video presentations show many of the ways Native children, families, and communities are healing from drug endangerment. Tribal leaders, service providers, and survivors share testimonials and describe practices that inform and inspire tribal communities that are endeavoring to support and treat traumatized children. Although each community must develop its own culturally relevant responses in helping victims endangered by drugs, these videos provide examples of programs that have been successful where they have been implemented in tribal communities throughout the Nation.
