Aboriginal People


If you live on reserve you may face challenges unique to reserve life:

  • Word travels fast. Reserves are typically small and you may be afraid to talk to anyone about the abuse for fear that rumours will spread.
  • Kinship. Going to a community centre or safe shelter on reserve could also be difficult if your abuser’s friends or family are employed there.
  • Social settings. Because the Aboriginal community is close knit, you may be worried that you will run into your abuser on or off reserve
