dealing with it, the problem is it's done poorly as 2.5 American Indian women are victims of abuse to every 1 of all other American women. At some point, we need to give the local authorities more leverage in solving the problem.
In conclusion, you're basically completely wrong, as I figured you would be.
If domestic abuse against women isn't a matter of cultural health, I have no idea what is.
