dc.description.abstract The topic of this report is the commercial sexual exploitation of American Indian women and girls in Minnesota, including but not limited to sex trafficking. Section I briefly describes the historical experiences of American Indian women in the U.S. that have made them uniquely vulnerable to commercial sexual exploitation, and unique in the ways that such exploitation impacts their well-being. Section II describes the methods and sources used to produce this report, and our definitions for the terms we use to describe the experiences of commercially sexually exploited Native women and girls. Section III provides information about the prevalence of Native women’s and girls’ involvement in the sex trade in Minnesota, across the U.S. and in Canada. Section IV describes Native women’s and girls’ patterns of entry into commercial sexual exploitation. Section V is a summary of the risk factors that have been found to facilitate Native women’s and girls’ entry into commercial sexual exploitation, and of current data describing the representation of Native women and girls in those facilitating factors in Minnesota. Section VI provides information about barriers and challenges to helping Native women and girls to escape commercial sexual exploitation. Section VII contains our conclusions and recommendations.
