Since time immemorial, Indigenous communities have created kinship and knowledge systems to support each other as individuals, families and tribal Nations. Currently, Native people compose approximately 2% of the United States population. Native people have resisted and responded to genocide, forced removal, broken treaties, federal and state infringement on tribal sovereignty, removal of our children, and continual disappearance and murder of all our relations. Today, Indigenous social workers have developed and returned to Indigenous centered frameworks and practices to respond to our unique needs by reclaiming social systems of kinship. Join us on November 3rd at 6:00pm EST., as a panel of Indigenous social workers from across the country describe their personal journeys to the social work profession as well as their work to honor our ancestors and to collectively uplift our people.
