RESOURCES ON SEX TRAFFICKING IN INDIAN COUNTRY
Sex trafficking is type of human trafficking crime that addresses the act of compelling or coercing a person's commercial sex acts. The coercion can be subtle or overt, physical or psychological, but it must be used to coerce a victim into performing commercial sex acts.
There is an unfortunate lack of reliable data on the problem of sex trafficking in Indian country; this lack of reliable data is tied to the limited amount of methodologically sound research, articles, and reports on the topic. However, anecdotal evidence suggests that Native women and girls are overrepresented in the sex industry and that sex trafficking disproportionately impacts Native women and girls.
