Our Programs & Services
TRIBAL TRAINING AND TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE
We are Native led and offer training and workshops on Human Trafficking of Indigenous people on reservations and urban settings. IHTC is experienced in helping Tribes develop effective systems and programs to combat human trafficking and support Indigenous victims in cultural and trauma informed approaches. We have worked with Tribal Nations throughout the country and we are experts of the dynamics of human trafficking in Indian Country.
The Mariposa Project curriculum is a tool proven successful for survivor empowerment and professional development by providing peer support and in-person survivor-led and developed curriculum-based cohorts. The Mariposa Project includes modules on healing, overcoming re-entry barriers, life skills, financial literacy, advocacy skills, and tools to help participants prepare for movement building and consulting on the issues of trafficking and sexual exploitation.
