Graduates from the Pilot Training Program became…
House of the Moon Facilitators! Each are now certified to offer culturally relevant empowerment and self-defense gatherings in their own communities using their own unique gifts and perspectives.
On April 27, 2021, 7 Native Women graduated from House of the Moon’s Pilot Facilitator Training Program. We are forever grateful for these courageous women who stepped forward and were the first to walk through the Empowerment and Self-Defense Training. With their commitment, critical feedback, and insights, we are able to improve our future programs and move forward in a good way.

“I have been using the training that I received to apply to every aspect of my job. I am now the elected official representative of our Tribe for MMIP/MMIW & have been seated on the Attorney General’s Task Force. I am also the Domestic Violence Coordinator for our Tribe & have been working on setting up a Coordinated Community Response Team for anyone who goes missing on the Reservation. Thank you to HOTM, I have these skills that are needed & the fire & passion in my heart.”
