The Crisis: Native American girls are targeted as sex trafficking victims
Young Native American girls are at a higher risk for sex trafficking and domestic abuse than any other racial group in the United States.
The targeted age is 12-14 years old.
40% of sex trafficking victims in South Dakota are Native girls and women.
With the influx of hundreds of thousands of men during the Sturgis bike rally and continuing on through the fall hunting season, the “Old West” lure of beautiful South Dakota draws men in huge numbers.
Finding Their Voice
Young Native Americans are speaking up and finding their voice, responding to these issues and their circumstances. They believe their future is brighter than their past. We can let Native American youth know that they are not alone and that we hear them. Native Hope's programs and partners offer a way out through education, counseling, training, and more.
