Native Americans are a nearly invisible population in urban areas across the United States and they possess a unique legal status that many non-Natives have little to no understanding about. Sadly, this makes working with this population potentially quite harmful. This Fact Sheet provides basic information about unique legal issues Urban Native Survivors are faced with.
Conduct on-site technical assistance for six to eight urban locations on developing new strategies for improved coordination, increased understanding of culture and traditions for holistic responses, and improved services for victims.
