There are many considerations when protecting property, employees and covering liability exposures, especially since they are not a one-size-fits-all risk model. Working with a trusted broker on key risks to design an insurance program around those risks is critical. Property, liability, and workers' compensation policies should be uniquely crafted to protect tribal assets, while considering cultural preferences. A Tribal Workers' Compensation (TWC) program should be selected without sacrificing the ability to determine its level of coverage. Entities can avoid the fraud and abuse that's prevalent in state systems through a sovereign TWC program. There are several workers’ compensation carriers serving Indian Country, so your broker should provide multiple options to ensure you aren’t paying too much. It’s a best practice to get a new quote annually. With the upcoming October 1 renewal period, it’s worth your time to compare and save on your insurance premiums.

You’ve heard of Peter Pan, but have you ever read the 1911 classic novel of the same name by J.M. Barrie? Growing up, I adored fantastical stories, but it never occurred to me to reach for that one. Its offensive depictions of Native characters were no secret, and my local library provided me with countless better books to read. That said, none of those better books showcased Native young heroes.

Domestic violence (intimate partner violence) is attempting to gain and keep power and control over an intimate partner through a pattern of coercive and harmful behaviors. While it is impossible to predict what an abusive partner might do, in most abusive relationships the tactics of an abusive partner will escalate over time. This can make abuse seem normal and can happen in a way that a victim-survivor doesn’t notice as the abuse increases.

Victim-survivors can experience a variety of emotions, but one surprising feeling may be responsibility. While we know no one is to blame for the abuse they experience, many abusive tactics manipulate victims into feeling responsible for the abuse they endure. A victim-survivor experiences abusive tactics at the hands of their partner to get and keep power and control over them. As the victim lacks control in the relationship they can not be responsible for the abuse they endure. Read Michelle’s story below to learn how a sense of false responsibility can impact a victim-survivor.

We know domestic violence is never okay. At StrongHearts Native Helpline, we hear many callers try to explain or make excuses for abuse. A common excuse for abuse is alcohol; victim-survivors and abusive partners blame the abuse on using alcohol. While we know using alcohol can strain a relationship, it is not the cause of domestic violence. It is also not an excuse for abusive behavior. The example below walks through such a scenario.
