Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) Training Conference

June 26th and June 27th

by Rachel Hood

A two-day session to discuss the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) will be held on June 26th and 27th at the Cliff Castle Casino Hotel.  The two-day event will be all-day agenda session regarding the implications of VAWA.  The panels will discuss how VAWA can dramatically affect how tribal law handles non-tribal offenders on tribal land as well as what is needed to uphold VAWA. 

Prior to VAWA being enacted in 2013, the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010 was signed into law in order to address the unique issues pertaining to victims and their offenders.

VAWA specifically addresses domestic violence offenders who are non-tribal citizens and have committed a specific crime on tribal land.

The two-day event will bring awareness as well as inform Yavapai-Apache Nation tribal members as to whether to implement VAWA in the Nation.  The event will allow tribal members to provide feedback and inform the YAN legislatures of the public interest regarding the YAN community.

For more information contact Rachel Hood at email: or phone (928) 451-6547.
