Family Gathering of Native Americans At Eastern Shoshone Recovery
We love GONAs and in February 2022 we partnered with Eastern Shoshone Recovery (Eastern Shoshone Recovery Program) and the Methamphetamine Initiative to document the process and outcomes related to the 3-day event. If you have never been to a GONA, check out the ESR March 2021 GONA video that Marcus Red Thunder created here: https://youtu.be/ DVuPBH0Bvn8. Our evaluation shows that 100% of participants felt the GONA was meaningful and relevant. There were also significant increases in feelings of belonging, mastery, interdependence, generosity, personal wellness, and proactive strategies. We know that GONA's work to bring families together, to laugh, heal, and build skills that help everyone on their wellness journeys.
