About the Training

The Gathering of Native Americans (GONA) curriculum was developed between 1990 and 1994 and has stood the test of time as an effective healing and planning model for tribal communities addressing impacts of historical and inter-generational trauma. Impacts include substance abuse, suicide, meth and other drug use, violence, poverty and more. This training will teach people how to facilitate a GONA for your tribe or agency.

Participants will go through the four foundational phases of the GONA – belonging, mastery, interdependence and generosity. A handout packet will be distributed to each participant that can be duplicated for GONA’s that will be implemented in your community.
