PSA Gives Voice to Indigenous Women

Posted By Toyacoyah Brown May 27th, 2015 Last Updated on: May 27th, 2015

Talented Kiowa Filmmaker Jeffrey Palmer is back with a PSA entitled “I Am A Life.” The PSA tackles an ongoing issue in Indigenous communities, violence against women.

According to US government statistics, Native American and Alaska Native women are more than 2.5 times more likely to be assaulted than other women in the US. That number is probably far greater.IAmALifePSA
