The Hopi-Tewa Women’s Coalition to End Abuse (HTWCEA) will be hosting a Sexual Assault Awareness Conference on April 17, 2013 at the Hopi Veteran’s Memorial Center in Kykotsmovi, AZ. Please contact HTWCEA for more information.
This conference will be held in support of April’s National Sexual Assault Awareness Month and in celebration of the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act signed by President Obama on March 7, 2013. HTWCEA and national Native Sister Coalitions will be active during the month in bringing about awareness and needed information will be brought to Hopi this April. The event is a great opportunity for Hopi, Tewa and all Native American’s to share and learn about prevention strategies, healing ways and communicating about sexual assault. There are many ways in which the rich Hopi and Tewa history and culture can prevent sexual assault and heal our people. Every year we are strengthening partnerships and collaborations and it is our hope to create more connections this year.Entertainer/Activist Mr. Ed Kabotie will be providing unique perspectives about trauma, its effects on his life, art and entertainment from an advocacy perspective at the conference. Mr. Kabotie is from the village of Shungopavi and the Tewa village of Khap'o Owinge (Santa Clara Pueblo). His vision as an artist is to express the virtues of Native American cultures. These expressions take the forms of overlay jewelry, watercolor paintings, traditional pottery, and trilingual (English, Hopi & Tewa) musical compositions. His heritage is his inspiration. Ed is a third generation artist who comes from a family of artists. Ed received the 2009 Male Artist of the Year Listener’s Choice Award from KUYI Hopi Radio and is currently an Artist in Residence at the Museum of Northern Arizona.
