We believe that every woman and girl should be entitled to assault prevention training, and that geographical boundaries should not be an obstacle to keeping women from living safer lives. Paul Henry and The White Tiger Group offers specialized assault prevention workshops for women and teen girls to First Nations communities anywhere in Canada. Our team is willing and able to bring specialized equipment and highly trained instructors to any First Nations Community in Canada.

Up to 75% of survivors of sexual assaults in Aboriginal communities are young women under 18 years old. 50% of those are under 14 years old, and almost 25% are younger than 7 years old.
(S. D. McIvor and T. Nahanee, 1998). Indigenous women between the ages of 25 and 44, with status under the Indian Act, were five times more likely than all other women of the same age to die as the result of violence (Indian and Northern Affairs Canada, 1996). Eight in ten Aboriginal women in Ontario reported having personally experienced violence. (Ontario Native Women’s Association 1989). Between 75% and 90% of women in some northern Aboriginal communities are battered. (Dumont-Smith and Sioui Labelle 1991).

Assault prevention for young women is an essential life-skill critical to keeping girls from pursuing the path of victimization. When effectively taught and used properly, assault prevention training can develop strong young women that can independently reduce their rate of assault and injury by recognizing dangerous situations and making well-informed choices to help stay safe and healthy.
