Violence Against Native Woman
This article is an exploration of the high rates of violence against Native women. Based on a review of the literature, the historical context of the Native experience is presented and four factors are explored that the authors argue contribute to higher rates of violence against Native women. Implications for research and practice that address the needs of Native women are identified. Voices of Native women from tribal communities are incorporated within the article and the Community Readiness model is introduced as a potential tool in working with tribal communities to address violence against Native women.
