dc.description.abstract There is a growing recognition that for health and wellness efforts to have a meaningful impact in American Indian and Alaska Native (A/AN) communities they must explicitly emphasize resilience and seek to address trauma. Historical experiences of colonization and trauma, as well as current rates of violence and abuse within tribal communities, vary throughout the United States. Similarly, there are a range of strengths and resiliencies present in our places, cultures, families, and governments that are a critical part of fostering Native health and wellness. Thus, facilitating positive changes for American Indian and Alaska Native peoples, it is important to develop an understanding of common aspects of resilience and trauma-related experiences. The backgrounder provides an overview of key statistics and concepts relevant to understand trauma in Indian Country, a summary of available evidence on the health impacts of trauma, and examples of how tribal communities are engaging in efforts to heal and build resilience. In efforts to assist tribal leaders, researchers, practitioners, and those who work with tribal communities in making decisions around resilience and trauma, we provide suggestions to help guide research and policy development....Part of the NCAI project: Affirming Native Youth: Making Visible.
