  Abstract: The day-long conference on July 1, 2003, at the Navajo Nation Museum and Library in Window Rock, AZ, is reviewed. The conference brought together Indian tribes to discuss their community challenges, including high rates of domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, alcohol abuse, and gang involvement. The conference also offered the first-ever tribal videoconference held in Indian Country. Hundreds of individuals nationwide participated in the videoconference, which was viewed by groups in 108 sites in 32 States. New publications offered by OJJDP are summarized, and are available for viewing and downloading at OJJDP’s Web site. The recent reorganization of OJJPD is outlined.
