Women have the right to be protected regardless of their cultural heritage. Although the US government is clearly aware of the high risk of assault for indigenous women, they have failed to take adequate measures to protect them. Tribal law enforcement agencies are extremely underfunded; lack of appropriate police training means that little is done to stop the cycle of abuse.
This must stop. Urge the U.S. Department of Internal Affairs (Indian) to take proactive measures to protect Indigenous women.
