The Injunity Animated Vignette provides a social, historical, and contemporary context to identify various factors which shape the experiences of Indigenous survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. The animated narrative begins by critically presenting the effects of colonization which set the tone for violence against tribal women. In addition, the vignette displays the challenges of navigating a flawed justice system, statistics of Indigenous survivors, and most importantly, the community’s ability to create spaces for support and healing.
The following digital stories have been developed by Native survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. The pieces share their stories of surviving abuse, along with examples of their paths for healing and resilience.
