Native Americans face obstacles in reporting sexual assault

Clip: 11/18/2017 | 3m 55s

Nearly 2 out of 3 cases of sexual assault in the U.S. go unreported. A recent poll by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health shows that fears of discrimination and unfair treatment by courts prevent Native Americans from reporting these crimes. Wyoming Public Radio reporter Melodie Edwards joins Hari Sreenivasan via Skype to discuss the issue.
