Tribal Leader Summit

The purpose of HTWCEA’s Tribal Leadership Summit is to build tribal leadership capacity in understanding the workings of policy-making; building and strengthening relationships with tribal, state, and federal entities to promote and support policy in the best interests of the Hopi Tribe; and finally to become educated in resources that are available to Native tribes that are working to end violence against Native women. HTWCEA aims to highlight the strength of Native leadership voices and their ability to advocate for the safety, health, and happiness of Native women, families, and communities. All goals of TLS are tied to strengthening sovereignty to protect Hopi women, families, children and Hopi’s hard sustaining belief that “Women are sacred.”

Past TLS goals Included:

  • Increase tribal leadership capacity in building and strengthening relationships that aim to end violence against Native women on the tribal, state, and federal level.

  • Understand the process of policy making on the state and federal level while also strengthening and building networking ties that will support Native policy efforts.

  • Build leadership capacity in using their voice to echo tribal needs and gaps that are specific to the Hopi community; while identifying technical assistance resources in areas relating to ending violence against Native women.
