The Facts on Violence Against American Indian/Alaskan Native Women

General Material
Published Date
January, 2012

American Indian women living on Indian reservations experience unique challenges that intensify the epidemic of violence against them. Accurate statistical data quantifying incidences of violence against women on reservations, or “Indian country”, is in small quantity. Comprehensive data on violence against women under tribal jurisdiction does not exist since no federal or Indian agency nor organization systematically collects this information.
