Most victims of human trafficking do not self-identify or seek help because of the profound and prolonged trauma they experience. Traffickers often deceive victims with false promises of love, a good job, or a stable life, then lure or force them into trafficking; a trafficker may even look like an intimate partner.

Recognizing the signs of trafficking and knowing how to offer support is critical in helping a victim heal.

Join a panel of American Indians and Alaska Natives as they discuss identifying, reaching, and supporting the healing of potential victims of trafficking. Listen to their insight as they answer participant's questions and share information about enriching cultural perspective and understanding for anti-trafficking work, recognizing the signs of human trafficking, and accessing non-competitive federal funding to support tribes in their victim services work.
