Resource: The US Department of Health and Human Services has published the Native Youth Toolkit on Human Trafficking. The purpose of this toolkit is to raise awareness and prevent trafficking of Native youth by educating them on what human trafficking is, available resources, safety tips, and ways to get involved in their communities.
The toolkit is available as a PDF document (PDF).This resource considers the unique cultural aspects of this issue for Native youth, tying in the fact that trafficking is outside of Native traditions, and encourages youth to speak with tribal Elders in their community. Native resources, such as the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center Visit disclaimer page and Strong Hearts Native Helpline Visit disclaimer page, are also listed as resources for youth to learn more.
