Native women are murdered at 10 times the national rate; 1 out 3 Native women will be raped in her lifetime, and 3 out of 5 physically assaulted. Even worse, 88% of the perpetrators are non-Indian and cannot be prosecuted by tribal governments. Raise awareness and help end the epidemic of violence against
Native Women in the U.S.

-please share this video from the Indian Law Resource Center, www.indianlaw.org

I watched this video in a class at school. The first man I ever loved was Native, and I could see through him the ways Native women are failed daily by men like him. On tumblr and beyond, Americans talk so much of being involved across borders and voicing concern for the women and disenfranchised of the world, when a lot of this can start here in our own country, on our own continent, on the very land that was taken from them where you and me, literally, still live.
