Event Details

After decades of grassroots advocacy by American Indian (AI) and Alaska Native (AN) women, the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act of 2005 included a provision that directed the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), in collaboration with the Office on Violence Against Women, to conduct a national baseline study on violence against AI and AN women living in tribal communities.  In addition, NIJ was directed to evaluate the tribal, local, state and federal criminal justice responses to these crimes.  This presentation will highlight the process NIJ undertook in collaboration with representatives from tribal communities and sovereign tribal governments to develop and test a culturally-informed survey instrument, culturally-appropriate survey administration, and community-specific sampling strategies
