Annotation: This video and accompanying transcript from a National Institute of Justice (NIJ) Research for the Real World seminar covers a presentation and discussion of the first set of estimates from a 2010 national large-scale survey of violence against women and men who identified themselves as American Indian or Alaska Native.
Abstract: The survey consisted of behaviorally specific questions on victimizations that included psychological aggression, coercive control and entrapment, physical violence, stalking, and sexual violence. The survey obtained responses from just over 1,500 men and just under 2,500 women who identified themselves as American Indian or as Alaska Native. The seminar presentation from the director of the study presents five key conclusions based on survey findings. First, most American Indian and Alaska Native adults have experienced violence at some time in their lives. A second key conclusion is that American Indian and Alaska Native men and women are victimized at similar rates, but in different ways. Women were more likely than men to have experienced stalking and sexual violence. Third, the study determined that the victimization rates were significantly higher for American Indians and Alaska Natives than for people who identified themselves as White and as non-Hispanic. Fourth, female victims were found to be more likely than male victims to need services because of their victimization; however, they were significantly less likely to have access to the needed services. Fifth, interracial violence was significantly more prevalent than intraracial violence. Following the presentation, a panel of representatives from the Office of the Vice President and the U.S. Justice Department’s Offices for Victims of Crime and Violence Against Women discussed the implications of and responses to the disproportionate violence experienced by American Indian and Alaska Native women and men.
