For Native Americans Facing Sexual Assault, Justice Feels Out Of Reach

Wind River Reservation in Ethete, Wyo., is home to two tribes, the Northern Arapaho and the Eastern Shoshone. The tribes have a history of conflict, but recently passed federal legislation called the Tribal Law and Order Act is motivating them to work together to create a stronger, unified court.

Half of American Indians living in majority-Native areas say they or a family member feels he or she has been treated unfairly by the courts, according to an NPR poll.
