To assist Victims of Crime and to provide resources for making positive life choices.

To provide a non-judgmental, supportive environment respecting the dignity of those we assist.

To educate the tribal community on issues of domestic violence and sexual assault.


The Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe acknowledges that violence against Native Women exists.

The Victim Services Program restores the respect of our women, strengthens our families, builds hope in our commmunity, and creates a positive, non-violent vision which inspires others.

In an effort to stop violence against women, we are committed to working together for the common goals of empowering women in taking control of their lives, by promoting awareness of violence against women, and by having abusers acknowledge their violence and be resonsible for their behavior.
