Sexual assault common on Navajo Reservation


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. —The sexual assault and killing of 11-year-old Ashlynne Mike sent shock through the Navajo Nation. The Albuquerque Journal reported sexual assault is too common in native communities.

“The numbers are staggering. One in three women in tribal communities are sexually assaulted and they're 2 1/2 times more likely to be assaulted than women in other populations as well,” Albuquerque Journal reporter Elisa Kaplan said.
