Video: 'Rape on the Reservation'

From Current TV, a searing new documentary on how violence is affecting the lives of Native American women.

One in three Native American women will be raped in her lifetime. In South Dakota, where Native Americans make up just 9% of the population, more than 40% of the incidents of domestic and sexual violence take place on the state's reservations. A recent episode of Current TV's "Vanguard" series turned its focus on one such reservation in South Dakota, where the growing epidemic of violence against women recently escalated to murder.
