Domestic and intimate partner violence occurs in all communities. However, various causes can affect the level, intensity, and prevalence of violence. Studies indicate that violence against women—including domestic abuse and sexual assault—is higher among Native American communities.
In all communities, it is possible to intervene in domestic violence situations early on, and even prevent them from happening in the first place. The New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NYSCADV) aims to support and facilitate the path to domestic violence prevention. NYSCADV’s Domestic Violence and Indigenous Peoples Project, provides training, listening sessions, and resources related to Indigenous Peoples for domestic violence service provider programs of New York State. This resource collection contains research, best practices, articles, and resources for advocates and domestic violence survivors.
This section includes the locations of all recognized Indigenous Nations and Territories across New York State.
To end domestic violence in all its forms, we must understand the historical context of why it exists in Native communities today. In this section, you will find a selection of items that highlight the history and issues impacting Indigenous people and how the issues are being addressed today.
