A new government report shows that over half the victims of domestic homicide were Indigenous.

The report also shows about 21 per cent of domestic deaths occurred on First Nations reserves.

The Saskatchewan Domestic Violence Death Review Report looks at the years 2005 to 2014.

Of the 48 reported domestic homicides in the province, 27 were Indigenous and 10 occurred in First Nations communities.

Of the Indigenous deaths, 14 were male and 13 female.

Five deaths occurred in the Northern Administration District.

The report notes impacts of colonization and residential schools as one of the causes of domestic homicide.
