Week 3: Our CSVANW Relative, Chasity Salvador, responses to today’s DVAM Instagram Challenge prompt: Share what it means to be a good relative in your community.

"To be a good relative in my community means to understand and put into action how to care for self and others. It means to give back to our seed and plant relatives that teach us so much about community strength, abundance, healing and health. It means to be in gratitude for each day we are able to spend with each other, our elders, our children, and this land. It means to understand our relations, and responsibility to take care of this land which in turn takes care of our community and families. It means engage in a lot of self reflection and develop a sense of self love and worth inextricably tied to every gift given to us by Creator as known in our Pueblo world and to honor that relationship and each other." Chasity Salvador

Tribal courts now have more power over non-Native defendants. Here's what to know

"Tribal courts can file more charges against non-Native defendants under a new law that took effect Saturday.
The change is meant to help tribal nations address violence against women and children in their communities. Studies have shown four in five Native women will experience violence at some point during their lifetimes."

The Violence Against Women Act took effect Oct. 1 for tribal courts.

Every year for our annual I Will Run for Them 5K we ask participates to share who they are running for and why. By asking folks to share their story, we are effectively asking them to connect their action of running to their own community. And it is through this connection we begin the process of healing. Here are some quotes we like to share with you all as we count down to our virtual run. Who are you dedicating your 5K to? And why?

We go hybrid this year. We are slowly transitioning back into the community with COVID-19 protocols for our safety and well-being during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Our I Will Run for Them 5K will be held on October 22 & October 23, 2022.

Decoding fentanyl: Here's the emojis parents need to look out for in text messages

Bernalillo County, the city of Albuquerque, the Drug Enforcement Administration and community partner organizations are joining forces to launch a community summit and educational awareness campaign dealing with the deadly drug fentanyl. The event will be held Oct. 13 at the Albuquerque Convention Center from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
CSVANW Staff attended the United States Attorney’s Office District of New Mexico Tribal Consultation 2022 Special Session on October 5, 2022 and mostly every Tribal leader and their law enforcement raised the awareness of the fentanyl crisis in their tribal communities.

Fentanyl is primarily sold on social media, and getting it can be as easy as using an emoji.

In conjunction with Domestic Violence Awareness Month (DVAM), we are hosting our annual I Will Run for Them virtual 5K Run/Walk awareness run to honor the resilience, strength and spirit of our Native relatives impacted by domestic violence.

We go hybrid this year. We are slowly transitioning back into community with COVID-19 protocols for our safety and well-being during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Our I Will Run for Them virtual 5K will be held on October 22 & October 23, 2022.

IN-PERSON: We will hold an in-person event on Saturday, October 22, 2022. We will have space for an open prayer, speakers, announcements, and a group stretching session before we run/walk/jog/move.

This year, we are offering t-shirts and swag to registrants in person. Shirt sizes are limited so we encourage you to get to the event early. Thank you for understanding.

VIRTUAL: Sunday, October 23, 2022, like last year virtually, participants will use this day to complete a 5K run, jog, walk and/or any form of movement that they are able to and have access to in their home community connecting with the land that cares for them.

Join us NEXT WEEK for Long COVID: A Community Conversation on Disability, Equity, and Its Impact on Advocates and Survivors in Native Communities

October 20, 2022 | 12:00pm - 2:00pm MDT

Long COVID (or post-COVID) conditions are impacting nearly 1 in 5 adults in the United States, according to a recent U.S. Census Bureau study analyzed by the CDC and released in June of this year. Long COVID symptoms range from fatigue, rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, cognitive difficulties, chronic pain, sensory abnormalities, and muscle weakness. They can be debilitating, lasting for weeks to months after recovery from the initial infection. In some cases, people suffer from severe, long COVID symptoms despite a mild, initial infection.

In this Community Conversation, we discuss what the experts and survivors are experiencing and how this impacts Native communities, advocacy, and anti-violence work.

Can Indian Country withstand the new Supreme Court?

“The Indian adoption project, the social experiment that happened between 1958 to 1967 — kids went flying off the reservation. … When that happens, you grow up hating yourself, because you are now being raised in the colonizers’ belief system of how awful you are, not just as a human being, but as a piece of culture that should have died out a long time ago.”

The High Court is set to hear a case that will affect thousands of Native kids. Is it qualified to judge?

Tribal courts can file more charges against non-Native defendants under a new law that took effect Saturday.
The change is meant to help tribal nations address violence against women and children in their communities. Studies have shown four in five Native women will experience violence at some point during their lifetimes.

30th Anniversary of Indigenous Peoples' Day

On this Indigenous Peoples' Day, we must acknowledge our country's ongoing crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women. Since 2016, over 5,700 Indigenous women and girls have gone missing.

Angel Charley, Executive Director of the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women, testified during a House hearing earlier this year about the dangerous link between missing and murdered Indigenous women and fossil fuel companies.”

Today is the 30th anniversary of Indigenous Peoples' Day, which was instituted in Berkeley, California, in 1992, to coincide with the 500th anniversary of the arrival of Columbus in the Americas on October 12, 1492. Previously, Columbus Day celebrated the 'discovery' of the Americas, which, through....

This , please consider learning about and supporting causes essential to the thriving of Native communities, such as the FREE virtual rally below from National Congress of American Indians (see below for more information).

17% of funding for Indigenous communities and conservation is actually given to Indigenous-led organizations and projects; the rest is often received by global organizations that are isolated from local concerns and often used for initiatives that displace and harm Indigenous people. (source: https://grist.org/article/the-world-spends-billions-to-protect-indigenous-land-only-17-goes-to-indigenous-people/) If you are donating funds today, please consider giving to Indigenous-led organizations, causes, mutual aid funds, and crowdfunding projects, particularly on the local level. Here are a few to consider if you do not already have a preferred organization or fund:

Join Native youth and allies from across to discuss the upcoming U.S. Supreme Court hearing that threatens to overturn the Indian Child Welfare Act!

For more than 40 years, ICWA has played an active part in preventing the harmful separation of Native families. On November 9, a small group of opponents in Haaland v. Brackeen will argue in front of the U.S. Supreme Court that those protections should be taken away.

In this Community Conversation, we discuss what the experts and survivors are experiencing and how this impacts Native communities, advocacy, and anti-violence work. We will hear from a Native physician, treating long COVID patients, a Native epidemiologist, and long COVID survivors who are also survivors of violence and advocates themselves.
