  • Don’t wound my spirit: Yakima* Indian Nation’s guide. This guide was also produced as part of an U.S. Administration on Aging-funded project. It includes an introduction and overview of abuse and sections on the role of the advocate, assisting elders with decision-making, and civil and criminal remedies for abuse. It is available from the Clearinghouse on Abuse and Neglect of the Elderly (CANE) (File number E2826-90).
    * Since the publication of the manual, the tribe has changed the spelling of its name to Yakama.

  • The Great Lakes Intertribal Council, with funding from the U.S. Administration on Aging, conducted a public awareness and education campaign in the mid 1980s, which focused on acknowledging elders. Children learned about their grandparents’ needs and made posters to honor them. A senior recognition event was held. In addition, abuse awareness activities were conducted in detention centers, and a variety of outreach materials were produced, including an outreach guide, which is available from the Clearinghouse on Abuse and Neglect of the Elderly (CANE) (File number E2657-25).
