Police are warning tribes and villagers that Alaska Native girls are being targeted by sex traffickers and pimps in Anchorage. "There have been traffickers and pimps who specifically target Native girls because they feel that they're versatile and they can post them (online) as Hawaiian, as Native, as Asian, as you name it," said Jolene Goeden, a special agent for the FBI in Anchorage.
