NASD is partnered with Sovereign Bodies Institute (SBI), helping launch their website in January 2019. SBI focuses building on indigenous traditions and the gathering of data and knowledge transfer to create, distribute, and research the issues on gender and sexual violence against Indigenous people. Sovereign Bodies Institute is committed to:
conducting, supporting, and mobilizing culturally-informed and community-engaged research on gender and sexual violence against Indigenous people
uplifting Indigenous researchers, knowledge keepers, and data visualists in their work to research and disseminate data on gender and sexual violence against Indigenous people
empowering Indigenous communities and nations to continue their work to end gender and sexual violence against Indigenous people, through data-driven partnerships that enhance research efforts, develop best practices, and transform data to action to protect and heal their peoples.
NASD helps offer input with the help of research assistants. Please consider applying to help with this research. You can apply to this by sending your resume here!
