Using the current literature on child sexual abuse in First Nations communities, from both academic databases and organizations involved with these communities, a comprehensive and critical review of the current state of data will be undertook. Variations in reported rates and methodological issues are to be specifically targeted to organize the data in a consistent and systematic way, with the ultimate purpose of providing grounds for future interventions, research and policy development.
