When celebrating Thanksgiving, remember that there are still a plethora of issues facing Native Americans, particularly Native women, that continue to be overlooked. I encourage everyone to take a little time to do some research about native issues in the next few days, but if you can't I will be posting about them. Image description: "This Thanksgiving, don't forget: Native women are 2.5 times more likely to be raped than women of any other race. On some reservations, native women are killed at 10 times the national average. 84% of native women have suffered abuse and 97% of that abuse is committed by non-natives. Natives face the highest rate of police brutality of any other race, natives aged 20 through 40 were three to five times more likely to be killed by the police compared to the percentage of their population. Natives at Standing Rock were shot with rubber bullets, terrorized with dogs, met with military force, shot with water cannons in freezing temperatures, arrested and put in dog crates, and even killed for defending their land from a dangerous pipeline that was rerouted through their land after Bismarck's 92% white residents denied it, afraid it would leak." #thanksgiving #nativeamerican #native #policebrutality #standingrock #nodapl #communism #socialism #anarchism #feminism #intersectionality #oppression #nativewoman - #regrann
