Red Women Rising: Community Photography Contribution

What is more important than creating new tools and resources for community members to use? Making sure that those new tools and resources are ones that the community feels comfortable using. As a part of our Red Women Rising initiative, we want to ensure that the website we are developing, redwomenrising.org, which will serve as a resource hub for Native survivors of domestic violence as well as an educational platform, is visually reflective of the community is intended to benefit. We believe that Native oriented resources require community participation to truly serve their purpose and fulfill their goals of truly benefiting community.

To help do this, we are asking for photo contributions from Native community members to help bring the website to life and enrich the experience of its future users!

Follow this link to the submission form for further information, to view submission guidelines, and to authorize us to use your imagery publicly. Thank you for trusting us and for your interest in our work. To see past Red women Rising materials, visit its project 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 will also develop a 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.

Contact redwomenrising@ccuih.org if you have any questions about the Red Women Rising Project.

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

Digital Stories


 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.

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/

    Sarah Biscarra Dilley


    Sarah Biscarra-Dilley 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.

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.
