American Indian Studies Spring Colloquium
The Inclusion and Exclusion of Native American Women in Sex Trafficking Literature: A Scoping Review
The original peoples of Turtle Island possess a unique risk of being sex trafficked due to the insidious impact of colonization. Sex trafficking is defined as the force, exploitation, and coercion into non-consensual sex work of an individual facilitated by a third party. Sex trafficking of Native American women and girls, though grossly understudied and researched, has been an issue since the beginning of the colonization of America.
Em Loerzel, PhD Candidate at the University of Washington School of Social work, will present her analysis of eight studies that included Native American women in sample demographics in sex trafficking literature. The presentation will cover key concepts, study characteristics, and implications.
