Native American Women Finally Gain More Protection From Rape and Abuse Thanks to VAWA
Thanks to the latest reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), the U.S. government is beginning to take steps to strengthen protections for victims of domestic violence within American Indian tribes. On Thursday, the Justice Department announced that three tribes will participate in a pilot program that will allow them to prosecute non-Native­ men for abuse against Native American women, an initiative that will eventually be expanded to additional tribes.

This is a huge step forward, though in so many ways it also feels like a slap in the face because it took so many decades of devastation against my fellow Native American women; so much fucking brutality, violence, murder and women straight up missing.   
It’s not like it stops here with a pilot program that is at this point may be rather tentative.  
Regardless here’s praying it’s the beginning of an End.
