Sex trafficking among American Indian and Native Alaskan communities is a disturbing reality that up to now has been tragically overlooked and under-investigated. Author Leslie A. Hagen clarifies the commonality of these criminal acts and makes recommendations as to how to raise awareness and bring sex trafficking to a halt. She proposes the development of a potential community response system that would help those affected to better detect the signs of trafficking and to formulate better ways to report and respond to such crimes.
