Sexual Assault in Indian Country - Summer 2014 - Recorded

Native American women experience domestic violence and sexual assault at rates far higher than the national average. The Rev. Evelene Tweedy Navarette Sombrero tells the powerful story of how colonization and resulting attitudes toward Native Americans led to atrocities towards Native women, including the use of rape as a tool of genocide, forced sterilizations, boarding school sexual abuse, and more. She encourages us to learn what Native women have faced to understand their plight and help create a better future.
