Through our advocacy work, we strive to reclaim our traditional values of respect and cooperation and we work to restore balance and harmony to our tribal communities.

In our work, we recognize and honor the strength of Native women. Advocacy goes beyond providing a service and managing a survivor as a case. Our purpose is to restore her status in indigenous society, and in doing so, we must work to undo the impacts of colonization and internalized oppression.

As the influence of colonization took over, women’s sovereignty and respect for women weakened. Government attempts to assimilate Native people destroyed the power and prestige of Native men. Native women were dehumanized and attempts to destroy her inherent power lead to physical and sexual attacks that ensued over the course of centuries to follow.

As values of colonizing societies were adopted, the mutual respect between Native women and men was damaged, as was the balance and harmony inherent in tribal societies.

Haseya provides time and space for Native survivors and victims to be supported in their own indigenous identify while she receives services that respond to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, dating violence and/or sex trafficking.

There’s a recognition that power comes from within. It comes from having knowledge and vision. The sun has power. The wind has power. We have the power to bring forth and nurture new life. That’s the power Mother Earth has. There’s the power of love.
