Title:
Tribal Strategies Against Violence: Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes Case Study
Subtitle/Series Name:
Abstract:
The Fort Peck Assiniboine and Sioux Tribes are a federally recognized American Indian Tribe located in northeastern Montana. The initial TSAV grant was awarded October 1, 1995, to make the Fort Peck Tribes the only pilot site among the four TSAV sites included in the formal Federal evaluation. The evaluation focused on the extent to which the TSAV goals were achieved. The goals were as follows: Establish and/or enhance a diverse planning team and build partnerships; develop and implement cost-effective crime and violence reduction strategies; provide youth with alternatives to substance abuse and gang involvement; and enhance local capability to identify public and private resources. The evaluation involved two site visits, the first in March 1998 and the second in October 1999. Evaluation activities included on-site interviews with affiliated program staff of the Fort Peck Tribes, key TSAV core team members, key tribal court personnel, key tribal law enforcement personnel, TSAV program partners, the Tribal Chairman and tribal council members, and other community service providers that participated in the local TSAV initiative's planning and implementation. The evaluation also reviewed program documents in U.S. Justice Department files as well as tribal and project documents maintained on-site. A survey of local TSAV stakeholders was conducted; and statistical data were analyzed from the Fort Peck Tribes' Department of Law and Justice, the Fort Peck Tribal Court, and the Wolf Point Police Department. The assessment of program structure and chronology focused on program organization and structure; the planning process; goals and strategies; budget; and site monitoring, reporting, and local evaluation. source
