VAIW (Violence Against Indian Women)

 

Domestic violence is an issue for large numbers of Native American women both on tribal lands and outside of Indian country.

American Indian and Alaskan Native women are battered, raped and stalked at far greater rates than any other group of women in the United States.

The U.S. Department of Justice estimates that Native American women are stalked at a rate at least twice that of any other group in the nation, and three out of four American Indian women have been victims of domestic violence.

This disproportionate amount of violence destroys the quality of life of Native Americans and threatens the stability and security of their families, communities and tribes.
