This video, prepared by OVC and the U.S. Department of the Interior's Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), presents an overview of the BIA Victim Specialist Program and identifies some of the program's successes and challenges providing services to victims of crime in Indian Country. BIA's National Victim Assistance Coordinator and BIA Victim Specialists who are based in Indian Country provide viewers with an explanation of the services available to native victims of crime through the program, and also discuss how BIA's Victim Specialist Program complements tribally operated victim services programs.
