Established best practices for family violence prevention activities in Indigenous communities emphasise community development principles of self-determination, empowerment and community ownership. Further, such prevention activities arise from community driven programs that respond to local needs, generate solutions, build on existing skills within the community, add value to existing structures and draw on the “strength of local traditions, structures and patterns of authority to promote a greater sense of community ownership and responsibility for local justice issues and problems” (Chantrill, 1997:13).
