From the Document: "More than four in five American Indian and Alaska Native women and men have experienced violence in their lifetime, and more than one in three experienced violence in the past year, according to a new report from an NIJ [National Institute of Justice]-funded study. The study, part of NIJ's research program on violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women (see sidebar, 'Examining Violence Against American Indian and Alaska Native Women'), looked at how prevalent psychological aggression and physical violence by intimate partners, stalking, and sexual violence were among American Indian and Alaska Native women and men. It also examined the perpetrators' race and the impact of the violence."
