RENO, Nev. (KOLO) - According to the National Institute of Justice more than four in five American Indian and Alaska Native women and men have experienced violence in their lifetime.

According to the Nevada Coalition to End Domestic and Sexual Violence, 219 Native Americans were victims of domestic violence or abuse in the past year.

Knowing this, it is important to understand the complexities of domestic violence within different cultures and understand that not every relationship and family can be helped with a cookie cutter procedure.

This is why the domestic violence resource center focuses on training their volunteers in a well-rounded approach.
