It is important to recognize the historical impact of colonization on indigenous communities. For centuries, indigenous peoples have faced systemic oppression, discrimination, and cultural genocide at the hands of colonizers. This history has created deep wounds that continue to impact indigenous communities today.

One of the major challenges for indigenous survivors of sexual abuse is the lack of culturally sensitive and trauma-informed support services. Many traditional forms of healing and wellness practices are not recognized or integrated into mainstream mental health services. This can leave indigenous sexual assault  survivors feeling isolated and misunderstood, hindering their ability to access the support they need.
