Financial Fraud in Indian Country

August 25, 2015 1:00 PM - August 25, 2015 2:00 PM

Financial abuse in Indian Country is prevalent but its scope is not fully understood.  This webinar will address the unique challenges and barriers in serving tribal communities by providing advocates with a general understanding about relevant laws and tribal codes. This webinar will also provide useful tools and information on existing resources that are culturally oriented. Our speakers will include Cynthia LaCounte, Director of the Office for American Indian, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiian Programs (ACL/AOA); Dr. Jacque Gray, Director of the National Indigenous Elder Justice Initiative (NIEJI); and Sarah Dewees, Senior Director of Research, Policy & Asset Building Programs of the First Nations Development Institute.
This webinar is part of the Taking Action series supported through a partnership with the FINRA Investor Education Foundation. More fraud-fighting tools are available from the FINRA Foundation at www.SaveAndInvest.org/FraudCenter.
