Wotakuye Wicakico: Calling on Our Relatives (Skill Seminar B)
In the Lakota language, Wotakuye Wicakico translates to calling on my relatives—a term adopted on the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to describe the wraparound process. Neither a program nor a quick fix, wraparound focuses on the unique strengths of the child and family, utilizing a balance of professional and natural supports in the community to develop strength-based, needs driven, individualized plans of care to help improve the lives of children and families with complex needs. This seminar focuses on the children and families involved in the Sacred Child Project, a Federally-funded demonstration project initiated in 1997 to implement the wraparound process in five Tribal communities in North Dakota.
