Indigenous communities are particularly situated to reevaluate their roles in combating institutionalized racism. This timely discussion will emphasize implicit bias in police interventions and anti-black racism in tribal communities. Kevin Maillard focuses on family law, civil liberties, and popular culture.

Social Services: Adverse Childhood Experiences
Dr. Megan Gunnar, University of Minnesota
1.5 CLE; 1.5 SWCE
Formative years of development carry us into adulthood. The Gunnar Laboratory for Developmental Psychobiology Research studies how children and adolescents regulate stress and emotions. Psychosocial stress conditions shape stress reactivity and regulation in both youth with a history of deprived care (adopted children) and children reared in their families of origin.
Law Enforcement: Identifying Human Trafficking in Tribal Communities
Victoria Sweet, The NoVo Foundation
Hon. Kelly Stoner, Tribal Law and Policy Institute
The crime of human trafficking is a multifaceted and complex crime that can be difficult to identify. It often appears as something else such as domestic violence, neglect, truancy, or drug possession. Without proper identification, the system fails victims as their true needs are never met. How can you tell if you might be dealing with human trafficking?
Tribal governments have the power to police their communities in a way to prevent human trafficking and punish those involved in such activities. Accordingly, this presenter will discuss particular code provisions tribal governments may enact to prevent human trafficking within their communities, as well as tips for law enforcement to prevent trafficking.
