Abstract: This report updates a previous Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS) report, American Indians and Crime, published in 1999. The findings include the involvement of alcohol, drugs, and weapons in violence against Indians. The report describes victim-offender relationships, the race of those involved in violence against Indians, and the rate of reporting to police by victims. It discusses the rates of arrest, suspect investigations and charges filed, and incarceration of Indians for violent crimes. Highlights include the following: (1) from 1976 to 2001, an estimated 3,738 American Indians were murdered; (2) among American Indians age 25 to 34, the rate of violent crime victimizations was more than 2 1/2 times the rate of all persons the same age; and (3) rates of violent victimization for both males and females were higher for American Indians than for all races.
