Uniting Worldviews to Advance Relationships in Indigenous Communities

Wednesday, 3:00 pm to 4:00 pm Free

Do you want to learn about decolonizing relationships between service providers and Indigenous communities? Join Brazelton Touchpoints Center on Wednesday, May 12 for “Uniting Worldviews to Advance Relationships in Indigenous Communities.”


This event will feature Terry (Ha-ne-ga-noh) Cross, MSW, an enrolled member of the Seneca Nation. He is the founding executive director of the National Indian Child Welfare Association (NICWA), now serving as a senior advisor. He is also the author of Positive Indian Parenting and co-authored Towards a Culturally Competent System of Care, published by Georgetown University.

This discussion will examine how NICWA has used the intersection between the linear worldview of Western culture, helping, and research, and the relational worldview of Indigenous peoples and organizations to advance the interests of Indigenous children and families. The speaker will share the story of this process as an example of decolonizing relationships between mainstream service providers and researchers and Indigenous communities.


This event is a part of Brazelton Touchpoint Center’s Learning to Listen: Conversations for Change series. To register, complete the online registration form. Spanish language translation will be available.
