Services – Tribal Communities
Nearly 40% of American Indian and Alaska Native women will be victims of domestic violence and more than 1/3 will be raped in their lifetime. The majority of the perpetrators are non-Indian and, as a result, many of these crimes are not reported and, when reported, prosecution does not always occur.
Crimes against American Indian and Alaska Native women are more likely to occur in private residencies and those who live on tribal lands often lack government protection and support.
In 2013, Congress passed a law that allows Indian tribes to prosecute crimes of domestic violence; something that provides additional protections to American Indian and Alaska Native women.
