WARNING if you are Sexually Assaulted do NOT go to Gerald L Ignace Indian Health Center @GLIIHC I’m a Certified Peer Support & Wellness Specialist worked in mental health for 15 yrs at NAMI @NAMICommunicate, SaintA @SaintAorg Lutheran Social Services @LutheranSvcs, and Community Alliance @Comm_Alliance & Trauma Informed Care Trained by @TGSaintARC TIC Senior Trainer Tim Grove
5-5-19 #MMIW Awareness Day I was sexually assaulted, called Native MILF, I had a Rape Kit, & Police said they were just “flirting!” What was worse was @GLIIHC offered no services for me from 9 men who assaulted me in 2019- 2020! They wonder why I’m mad!
Not once did @GLIIHC Sexual Assault Nurse Allie Wayward talk to me 2019-2020 about any of Assaults from the 9 men. Not even before I reported I had no choice but to go get a rape kit at Aurora Sinai Samaitan Hospital. Allie also said I can NEVER have access to ANY of my 42 years of medical records with the clinic when I asked to have access to my records. I asked for my medical records in March 2020 and have yet to receive a single page of any of my official records from Allie.
Not once did @GLIIHC Kathy LaRoque Sexual Assault Violence Counselor of Circles of Strength ever talked to me from 2019-2020 when the Assaults from 9 men occurred. Kathy also violated my HIPPA.
Winner Butler is not a Sexual Assault Or Trauma Specialist despite what she has been reported to the state according to Dr Singh. Offered no service. Also she sat on my medical release papers for 8 months that Emma Thomas Trauma Specialist from Aurora Sinai Samaritan Hospital thereby blocking Emma to get me a outside Sexual Assault Trauma Therapist.
Deborah Black Ignace of @GLIIHC despite my Primary Doctor Mike Blaschke said to me do not sign Ignace’s papers they are illegal & I have a right to an attorney, she put a metaphor gun to my head & said no lawyer, broke my HIPPA, told me I had to sign 6/3 her illegal papers when I had til 6/5 according to the letter she gave me.
Deborah Black Ignace on 6/3/20 also disrespected my Mohican Elder Grandpa Lee Dillman 87 years old who witnessed her say I don’t deserve an attorney, violated my HIPPA, & threatened me to sign her illegal papers on 6/3/2020 when her own letter say I had til 6/5/20 Grandpa said “Ignace Clinic has turned Wicked! Such Evil!”
On June 1 2019 I had written a formal grievance letter which the @GLIIHC website stated would be heard, follow grievance procedure, & claimed there would be no retaliation. Dr Ignace didn’t follow his own grievance policy I was denied to talk to Administrator Maurice James, Lyle & the entire Board & they all Retaliated. My written grievance was never dealt with even though HR confirmed they did receive my complaint. I spent a year following their grievance policy trying to be heard with no success.
If an Indian Clinic offers no services during a crisis of 9 assaults & you file a written grievance is ignored & they do not talk to you & they retaliate against you including not listening to their own Dr Blaschke who said don’t sign Ignace’s paper can you see how that is upsetting?
WARNING if you are Sexually Assaulted do NOT go to Gerald L Ignace Indian Health Center @GLIIHC I’m a Certified Peer Support & Wellness Specialist worked in mental health for 15 yrs and Trauma Informed Care. I worked with the best mental health providers and I know professionally Gerald L Ignace Indian Health Center Behavioral Health Center is NOT a healthy place for Sexual Assault Victims.
Betsy Cocos & Emma Thomas Sexual Assault Trauma Specialists at @SaintAorg & at Aurora Sinai Samaritan Hospital, Christine Crisis Counselor at @RAINN, & Crisis Line & they all agreed with me because of Indian Health Clinic’s neglect in not providing any services during my crisis is wrong! They said write a letter to Gerald L Ignace Indian Health Center and get a lawyer.
I pray for healing the same way I pray for healing for my Serial Rapist & Sexual Assault Father who raped & sexually assaulted me for 15 years, my Elder Grandma Carrie Lee Wood, my Aunt Barbie Dillman when she was 12, and my young sister who was 5 which I reported all of this to Gerald L Ignace Indian Health Center every time it occured to me and these Native Women in my family.
Gerald L Ignace never did anything to protect us 4 Native Women in my family each and everytime I reported it happening to us to @GLIIHC. Basically Gerald L Ignace Indian Health enabled Serial Rapist Sexual Assault Grady Guy Gardner Jr to hurt 4 Native Women in my family that I know about…and those we don’t know.
I pray Gerald L Ignace Indian Health Center reads this letter & understands why I am upset by these injustices to me & the 4 Native Women in my family. I pray for healing for all of us so that no Native Woman has to suffer alone the way @GLIIHC made me, Gamma, Aunt Barbie, and my lil sis SUFFER!

Wiping Away the Tears
I am enrolled in the Stockbridge-Munsee band of Mohican Nation and I was in foster care for a few years. I was told that Native American people who were adopted or went through foster care were considered “Lost Birds.” A longtime mentor brought me to a special ceremony called the Wiping Away the Tears ceremony at Indian Summer Festival during September 2002. The ceremony was part of that Indian Summer Festival’s theme “Coming Home,” which extended honor and healing to Indian adoptees and Indians that were in foster homes. Lakota Chief Arvol Looking Horse Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe performed the “Wiping Away the Tears” describes the special emphasis the “Wablenica Ceremony”, prayer and pipe ceremony, American Indian adoptees and foster care children are welcomed back to Native culture and their spiritual home. This ceremony also helped families who were separated by adoption or foster care begin the reconciliation process. The Wiping of Tears Ceremony to heal the grief caused by the years of separation from their families and communities. The entire ceremony for all of us Lost Birds in a circle praying and singing together. I hope, if you haven’t had a chance to participate in one, that you have the opportunity to participate in such a ceremony, it’s been very healing and life altering experience for me.
