This fact sheet discusses types and extent of trauma among American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) including data from studies examining adverse childhood experiences focusing on AI/AN children and those examining historical trauma. These studies suggest that AI/AN populations experience trauma at a rate that exceeds, and is different from, that of the general population.
