What is the Native Difference? Probation Supervision of Gang Affected Native American Youth

What is the Native Difference? Probation Supervision of Gang Affected Native American Youth is proudly presented to you by CEQ American Probation and Parole Association. Thank you. We hope that you enjoy your course.

Recorded Webinar


Original Live Broadcast Date: Tuesday, March 5, 2013


This webinar informs probation officers that supervise gang affected Native American youth about the unique aspect of this particular client. Gangs are a relatively new occurrence on Indian lands but the problem is growing quickly and is creating a significant impact on community safety and a burden on the tribal criminal justice system. Supervising gang affected youth is often treated as a specialty caseload in major jurisdictions, however tribal and rural agencies do not enjoy that luxury and must supervise them along with their general caseload. Because of historical trauma and the cultural and spiritual elements of the sovereign Indian nations, there are unique aspects to be considered when supervising native gang affected youth. These are presented in this program in order to better assist the probation officer in providing better supervision plans and outcomes for this special client. This information is also useful to non-tribal probation departments that supervise gang affected Native youth and encourages the development of partnerships and resource sharing with their tribal counterparts.


Learning Objectives:



  • Explain the difference between Native gang members and their urban counterparts.

  • Differentiate between reservation gang members and Native youth in urban gangs.

  • Discuss the impact of Historical Trauma on Native people and how it links to the Native gang issue.

  • Describe how Native culture and spiritual balance can play a role in working with native youth that are gang affected.


Panelists:


David J. Rogers, Fox Valley Technical College (FVTC)


Adam K. Matz, American Probation and Parole Association (APPA)


Mary Ann Mowatt, American Probation and Parole Association (APPA)
