This purpose of this article is to explore issues relevant to understanding the current high rates of the intergenerational suppressed epidemic of violence against indigenous women and how the general public can use this information to aid in lowering this epidemic. Based on a review of past literature, the hypothesis arose of how media representation is related to increased violence against Indigenous women and girls. This article will explore this hypothesis and introduce a call to action from the general public on how we can use our individual platforms to lower this epidemic.
