Christine Stark is a writer and researcher who contributed to the 2011 report, "Garden of Truth: The Prostitution and Trafficking of Native Women in MN." She is currently working on a follow up report called "Gathering Our Stories: The Prostitution and Trafficking of Native Women on the Duluth Ships," which focuses specifically on the Native American and First Nations women who are the victims of prostitution and sex trafficking on the Great Lakes. In this segment she discusses the historical factors that contribute to the victimization of Indigenous women and provides a perspective on what can be done to help the women and the communities heal from what she calls an "indescribable assault against Native people" within the context of regional and national history.
