This report examines the prevalence of violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women and men, using a large nationally representative sample from the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence survey (NISVS). More specifically, it provides estimates of sexual violence, physical violence by intimate partners, talking, and psychological aggression by intimate partners. It also provides estimates of interracial and interracial victimizations and briefly examines the impact of violence. Results should be used to raise awareness and understanding about violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women and men.”
