Native American women who are victims of domestic violence face many obstacles and issues not necessarily faced by white women who are victims of domestic violence. This comment examines the effect domestic violence has on tribal communities, the role of government in preventing and responding to domestic violence, tribal sovereignty and federal Indian law, the Violence Against Women Act of 2005 and other efforts by Congress to protect Native American domestic violence victims, and policy recommendations for the future.
