Violence Against Native American Women on Reservations

In the novel "There, There" (2018) Cheyenne and Arapaho author Tommy Orange creates a character of Cheyenne descent named Jacquie Red Feather, who faces sexual assault during the Native American occupation of Alcatraz. This project will research the issue of sexual violence against Native American women on reservations, as well as what is being done within the US and tribal justice systems to solve this issue.
