Violence Against Native Women
- More than four out of five American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced violence in their lifetime.
- North Carolina: 56.1% have experienced sexual violence (RCCRC: 50.6% in 2020); 55.5% experienced physical assault; 48% experienced stalking, 66.4% experience psychological aggression.
- Nationally - Native women suffer from violence at a rate 2.5 times greater than any other population in the United States.
- Nationally - 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.
