Abstract
For more than a decade, the Alaska Federation of Natives (AFN) has sought to bring attention, understanding, and solutions to the problem of substance abuse and related violence among Alaska Natives. Progress has been made in some communities, but substance abuse continues to cause suffering, pain, death, and despair among many Alaska Native families. At the request of AFN, this report was undertaken to provide a basis for deriving effective, lasting solutions.

Abstract
Having healthy families helps our children, teens, adults, elders, and culture to thrive. We know from the media, our work, and from the stories of our friends and relatives how domestic and sexual violence (DV/SV) can wound individuals, families, and whole communities. The first step to addressing a problem is to understand its depth and breadth. This bulletin is the first time that data on domestic and sexual violence affecting Alaska Native people of all ages is brought together in one place. Beginning with pregnancy, this bulletin takes us through the major stages of life and shares the consequences of violence, how many people are affected, and Alaska-specific responses.
