Sexual Violence in Native American Communities

Kelly, Joanna; Smith, Raymond Arthur

This issue brief will describe the high rate of sexual violence in Native American communities, which is so large that one in three Native women report incidents of rape. While there have been numerous political and jurisdictional changes in the past decade to address this issue, more has to be done in order to improve the rates of sexual violence in a timely and effective manner.
