Chipewyan, a name given to us by the Cree which means ‘pointed skin’, (in reference to the clothes the Chipewyan wore) is an Aboriginal group that spans across the northern parts of Canada. However, most Chipewyan prefer to be called Dene (‘the people’) in place of Chipewyan.
I am not Indian. I have no ancestors from India.
I am a mixed race First Nations person whose history is rooted in the Dene people from Canada and the Aztec people in El Salvador.
Indigenous people are not a costume. Indigenous people are not a trend. Indigenous people are important and need to start getting the respect they deserve. - Mod M
Linda Forsell. Cause of Death: Woman
War (Mexico - Ciudad Juarez)
In Mexico the war is of a different sort. The so-called “war on drugs” plays out between powerful drug cartels that the police and military try to confine but usually end up becoming a part of. Women are under serious attack. Brutal women’s killings, kidnappings and rapes have skirted the path of drugs. Young girls have been found dead in barrels of acid, mutilated with breast ripped off or abducted to be found dead a month later in the desert.
The underlying causes of these atrocities are complicated and impossible to fully comprehend , but drugs, lawlessness, corruption, innumerous undocumented immigrants and power-hungry cartel member
Mexico: In 2010, Ciudad Juarez was crowned the murder capitol of the world. Murders of women have taken extreme shapes through mutilations, kidnappings, rapes and deformations.
Mexico: Pink crosses all over Ciudad Juarez mark where women have been founded murdered.
