Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2022, $100,000)

The Kiowa Tribe Suicide Prevention and Wellness Project seeks to provide additional information to the Kiowa Tribe Teen Suicide program by requesting a Risk Assessment to study the various ways Kiowa Tribe and American Indian at-risk Teens enter the Juvenile Justice system on the reservation.  The project also intends to measure any gaps in juvenile justice administration, including new legal issues due to McGirt and other jurisdictional issues on the reservation in Southwest OK that may prevent the effective implementation of juvenile justice systems on the reservation.
