incorporate the concepts of Historical Trauma into services for Natives & fund urban Indian agencies
Ulf Kindler commented
I think it is a sad thing that indigene people are not integrated sufficiently nowerdays. Like in most parts of the world unwanted people are pushed aside and are forgotten to be guided into society today. They are traumatized, stigmatized and injustified; not really taken care of and noticed, though they suffered the longest Holocaust of the modern world and gave it one of the greatest myths of friendship, honesty and courage in history. It is an ethic matter for all american people to acknowledge the human rights and ethnic needs of this homeless and traumatized population}>.

Understanding that most Evidence Based Programs do not conduct their research with Tribes and Urban Indians, it is essential to incorporate the historical trauma perspective into any programs that impact Native Americans and adequately fund those Tribal and Urban Indian programs that do know how to effectively work with Natives. This will prove cost effective in areas such as Child Welfare, Co-Occurring Alcohol/Drug and Mental Health Programs, Trauma Focused, Housing and Homeless, and Judicial systems.
