Mission Statement

The primary intent of American Indians Against Abuse, Inc. is to firmly address and promote elimination of violence and other abuses against American Indian women within families and communities throughout the eleven (11) Wisconsin tribes by supporting culturally sensitive programming specific to traditional customs, values, and teachings.

Who we are

A taskforce of interested people from all eleven Wisconsin Tribes met regularly since 1984 to work against abuse. The goal was to obtain domestic abuse services for all Wisconsin Tribes. The task force developed into American Indians Against Abuse (AIAA) which became incorporated in 1991. Community education and training were coordinated with domestic abuse, sexual assault, alcohol and other drug abuse, mental health and crime victims service providers.

Purpose

  • to act in an advisory capacity during the implementation and operation of AIAA sponsored activities/programs.
  • To address other abuses.
  • To develop a database regarding the incidence of domestic abuse in Indian Country.
  • To develop a resource library.
  • To be a resource for development of standards for state recognized batterers re-education groups.
  • To provide community education and networking on domestic violence issues to native and non-native communities on a daily basis.
  • To stop violence on our reservations and in tribal communities.
  • To seek state and federal funding for anti-abuse programs.
  • To be a resource in development of Sexual Assault Protocol within tribal communities.
