American Indian and Alaska Native women – the group most at risk of rape in America – face a unique set of hurdles when they seek justice for an assault on tribal lands. Newsy spent 18 months investigating what happens to sexual assault cases on two reservations, the Fort Peck Reservation in Montana and the Fort Berthold Reservation in North Dakota. Documents and dozens of interviews reveal perpetrators are allowed to go free with little or no punishment. Link to the video on Newsy. Link to the text component in USA TODAY.
