Native American women experience the highest rates of violence of any other group in the United States. One in three native women have been victims of sexual assault and the murder rate of indigenous women is consistently higher than the national average. On this edition, Andrea Smith, author of “Conquest: Sexual Violence and Native American Genocide” explains the connection between violence against women, and the colonization of native lands and bodies.

A note of warning: Andrea Smith's presentation includes descriptions of racial and sexual violence, so please be forewarned.

Andrea Smith, author of “Conquest: Sexual Violence and American Indian
Genocide”
