Several years ago the International Human Rights Clinic at Willamette University College of Law did a deep dive into human trafficking in the state. One of the things director Gwynne Skinner says came out of that report was the realization of how little was known about the human trafficking within the Native American population.

She says in looking into trafficking of Native American girls and women  illuminates the broader problems of all human trafficking. The Human Trafficking and Native Peoples in Oregon report (pdf) explores how factors like intergenerational trauma correlate with social problems including sexual violence, sexual abuse, substance abuse, homelessness, native peoples’ over-representation in foster care, and more.
