Join the Red Women Rising movement to help raise awareness of Urban Indian domestic violence issues.
CCUIH’s Red Women Rising project supports culturally responsive domestic violence services for Urban Indians by increasing public awareness and enhancing collaborations between Urban Indian health organizations, domestic violence service providers and traditional healers. This webpage houses all of the Red Women Rising materials so you can share it on your social media network and to start important conversations about recognizing abuse, stopping violence, and healing as a community.
You can find the following resources on this page:
The Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010 and the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act were positive steps in addressing violence against American Indian women; however, resources, services and jurisdictional rights gained through this legislation were primarily directed at American Indian women living on tribal lands. With over 70% of American Indians living in urban environments nationally, this leaves an incredible gap in resources and culturally relevant services dedicated to serving the needs of the majority of American Indian women. CCUIH’s Red Women Rising project aims in increase awareness around Urban Indian women’s domestic violence issues and enhance their access to domestic violence services.
In addition to public awareness efforts, as part of Red Women Rising, CCUIH developed a Red Women Rising Best Practices Guide to help Urban Indian health organizations to enhance their services for domestic violence survivors and strengthen their collaborative relationships with domestic violence service providers.

Red Women Rising Injunuity Animated Vignette
CCUIH worked with the Injunuity project to develop a Red Women Rising animated vignette. This vignette includes audio from Dr. Cutcha Risling Baldy who is Hupa, Yurok and Karuk and currently an Assistant Professor of American Indian Studies at San Diego State University. Her research is focused on American Indian Studies, gender and decolonization. The vignette also includes audio from Kathy Willcuts, a Traditional Lakota healer who focuses her practice on women and youth. To learn more about the Injunuity Project, visit injunuity.org
CCUIH facilitated a digital storytelling workshop to empower Native Women to share their stories about their experiences with Domestic Violence. Digital Stories are first-hand survivor experiences that share narratives of hope and resilience.

Healing them takes all of us. #RedWomenRising #IntergenerationalTrauma http://sumo.ly/h5fq @CCUIH_CA
“Today’s Tribal youth carry the wounds of their ancestors, compounded by generations of atrocities committed against this nation’s Indigenous people, including historical traumatic campaigns of eradication, reservation assignment, boarding schools, and relocation. Although they carry these wounds, these contemporary youth will be the first generation with an opportunity to heal from historical trauma.” Ivy Wright-Bryan, National Director of Native American Mentoring, Big Brothers Big Sisters of AmericaHealing them takes all of us. #RedWomenRising #IntergenerationalTrauma http://sumo.ly/h5fq
Trust Survivors. Recognize Abuse. Heal Our Communities. #RedWomenRising http://goo.gl/5t3PNw
More than any other ethnic or racial group, Native Women are victims of intimate partner violence. Trust Survivors. Recognize Abuse. Stop Violence. Heal Our Communities. #RedWomenRising http://ccuih.org/red-women-rising/
Recognize Abuse. Stop Violence. #RedWomenRising #TeenDatingViolence http://goo.gl/5t3PNw
“She’s just being dramatic.” “Oh, they were just playing.” The signs of dating violence can sometimes seem normal and easy to brush off—and that is part of the problem. One of the things you can do as an ally—a friend, a parent, a sibling—is simply ask. Let them know you’re there for them. Give them confidence. Give them the power to break the cycle. #RedWomenRising http://ccuih.org/red-women-rising/
Healing them takes all of us. #RedWomenRising #ViolenceAgainstWomen http://goo.gl/5t3PNw
Studies have found that one in three Native Women will experience sexual assault in her lifetime, but this is an undercount because many Native Women do not report their sexual assault in order to avoid further governmental trauma. Trust Survivors. Recognize Abuse. Stop Violence. Heal Our Communities. #RedWomenRising http://ccuih.org/red-women-rising/
Know that you are not alone. You will always rise. #RedWomenRising http://goo.gl/5t3PNw
Those who experience violence or abuse often feel as though they are alone. But your community does not vanish when the abuse starts. Remember your community, and let that connection sustain you through the hardest of times, as it will never leave you. #RedWomenRising http://ccuih.org/red-women-rising/

Red Women Rising: Artist’s Biography
CCUIH was pleased to work with Sarah Biscarra Dilley on the Red Women Rising Project, whose art is featured in multiple infographics above. Sarah is a multidisciplinary artist and weaver currently residing in the unceded homeland of the Ohlone people. She is a member of Black Salt Collective, whose liminal and ever-expanding body of work expresses a contemporary non-linear identity in which experience results in atmosphere.
Her interdisciplinary process explores the spaces between the worlds; between blood sickness and bloodlines, between grief and joy, between body and land. Being raised in Chumash, Chicano, and queer family traditions between urban and rural environments has directly informed her understandings of embodiment and place as spatial, temporal and grounded in relationship. Anchored in the intention and practices of indigenous resurgence through contradiction, complexity and communion, she uses found footage, cut paper, archival material, handwork, language and thread to trace landscapes of indigenous resilience and shifting relationships of belonging, displacement, and home.
Her academic and visual work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, individually and with Black Salt Collective. Sites of engagement include: Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, California Historical Society, University of California at Santa Barbara, SOMArts Cultural Center, First Peoples House at University of Victoria, Intertribal Friendship House, Toronto Free Gallery, Open Engagement, and Native American and Indigenous Studies Association (conferences at UC Davis/Sacramento and Washington D.C).
While much of her foundations are shaped by body, land, and the worlds in and around us, she has a BA in Urban Studies from the San Francisco Art Institute and is currently pursuing a PhD in Native American Studies at University of California, Davis. She is full of birds.

Red Women Rising Best Practices Guide for Urban Indian Health Organizations
The Red Women Rising Best Practices Guide aims to improve services for survivors of domestic violence at Urban Indian Health organizations. This Guide was developed by the California Consortium for Urban Indian Health (CCUIH), and funded by the Blue Shield of California Foundation. It was informed by the partnership between Sacramento Native American Health Center (SNAHC) and WEAVE, Inc., part of the Blue Shield of California Foundation’s statewide project to integrate health care and domestic violence response throughout California.
During this partnership, SNAHC and WEAVE developed a cross functional team of champions and a framework of policies and procedures that CCUIH has documented to share with our membership and other Indian health programs. The Red Women Rising Best Practices Guide provides information on the following topics:
- + Assessing your health organization’s quality of services for DV survivors
- + Enhancing screening practices
- + Employee DV policy
- + Getting health services to DV clients
- + Health care/DV Partnerships
- + The Buddy System
- + Cross Trainings
- + Prioritizing DV education in community programming.
We thank staff at Sacramento Native American Health Center and WEAVE, Inc., for the development of this guide, particulary: Cibonay Cordova, Britta Guerrero, Beth Hassett, Tara Stowbunenko, and Vanessa Cuevas-Romero.
By building a strong working relationship, WEAVE and SNAHC continue to work together beyond their initial funded partnership. We can all learn from this strong partnership and commitment to addressing DV. By prioritizing DV survivors, we can end cycles of violence and heal our communities.

The Native American Women’s Health Education Resource Center‘s book “What To Do When You’re Raped” is an illustrated guide created to answer the questions young Native women face following a sexual assault, from thinking through buying emergency contraception, to getting tested for STDS, to who to turn to for support. You can download this resource for free, and it is also linked on our website.
In partnership with faculty from Sacred Circle and Mending the Sacred Hoop Technical Assistance Project, Futures Without Violence worked with more than 100 Indian health programs as well as domestic violence (DV) advocacy programs across the United States to improve the health system response to domestic violence. Funded by the Indian Health Service and Administration for Children and Families, the IHS/ACF Domestic Violence Project (2002-2009), trained thousands of health care providers and community advocates, identified and empowered national experts, instituted sustainable DV response programs in hospitals and clinics, developed model policies and tools to better address abuse and prevent violence, and dramatically increased screening for DV. This report explains how that work can be replicated by highlighting stories and models from the field and identifying 10 important action steps.
The American Indian/Alaska Native Women’s Health Safety Card aims to help women recognize healthy and unhealthy relationship dynamics and identify how their relationship may impact their health, as well as their children. This card may be given to patients routinely following a provider’s DV/SA screen; distributed at health fairs or community outreach events; and is also effective when stocked in private areas like bathrooms and exam rooms. This 4-panel double sided tool folds up to the size of a business card.
This curriculum focuses on the crucial role of the health care provider in identifying and addressing IPV, reproductive coercion (RC), and sexual coercion (SC). The curriculum provides training, tools, and resources to help health care providers address these complex and sometimes uncomfortable issues. It highlights research that demonstrates how a brief intervention using a safety card to educate female patients about RC and SC during primary care and reproductive health visits can improve reproductive health outcomes and promote safe and health relationships. Safety cards and other resources for integrating and sustaining a trauma-informed coordinated response to IPV, RC, and SC are included in this curriculum.
