Our Bodies, Our Stories: Sexual Violence Among Native Women in Seattle, WA

General Material
Published Date
August, 2018

In 2010, Urban Indian Health Institute partnered with the Division of Violence Prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to administer a comprehensive sexual violence survey to better understand the experiences of urban Native women in Seattle, Washington. King County, where Seattle is located, has a large urban Indian population of approximately 44,500 people.

This survey attempted to gather a well-rounded understanding of multiple forms of sexual violence perpetrated against this population, including whether a woman was raped or coerced into sex. In this initial release of the data, a valuable snapshot is exposed for communities and health care providers serving urban Native women.
