Garden of Truth: The Prostitution and Trafficking of Native Women in Minnesota

General Material
Published Date
October, 2011

This report reviews findings from an assessment of the life circumstances of Native women in prostitution in Minnesota, a group of women not previously studied in research such as this.

Findings showed that about half of the women interviewed met a conservative legal definition of sex trafficking which involves third-party control over the prostituting person by pimps or traffickers. Yet most (86%) interviewees felt that no women really know what they're getting into when they begin prostituting, and that there is deception and trickery involved.
