Youth Gathering of Native Americans—GONA
November 18, 19, 20, 2022
Community healing is necessary for substance abuse pre- vention. Healthy traditions in the Native American commu- nity are key to effective prevention. The holistic approach to wellness is a traditional part of Native American belief systems. Every Youth is of value in empowering the com- munity. The GONA is a safe place for Youth to share, heal, and plan for action. The GONA provides Native Youth with an indigenous framework to examine historical trauma, and its impact on substance abuse and suicidal behavior issues, with an emphasis on community empowerment.
