Violence Against Native Women
- More than four out of five American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced violence in their lifetime.
- Native women suffer from violence at a rate 2.5 times greater than any other population in the United States.
- One in three Native women will be raped in her lifetime, and four in five Native women will be victims of a violent assault. It is startling that non-Native perpetrators commit the majority of these crimes.
- On some reservations, Native women are killed at 10 times the national average.
NIWRC is dedicated to reclaiming the sovereignty of tribal communities and safeguarding Native women and their children. Through training and technical assistance, educational resources, and policy development, we provide national leadership to show that offenders can and will be held accountable and that Native women and their children are entitled to: 1) safety from violence within their homes and in their community; 2) justice both on and off tribal lands; and 3) access to culturally-appropriate services based on their tribal beliefs and practices.
