      Alaska Natives constitute approximately 17 per cent of the Alaska’s population, but are under-represented in justice system employment and over-represented among those who are arrested, convicted, and incarcerated and among those victimized by violent crime.

National data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics on criminal victimization of Alaska Natives and American Indians are presented, showing that the rate of violent victimization among Alaska Natives and American Indians is more than twice as high as the national average.
