On this week’s show, some things to consider about native rights as the Thanksgiving and shopping seasons begin.
Native American women experience the highest rates of violence of any other group in the United States. One in three native women have been victims of sexual assault and the murder rate of indigenous women is consistently higher than the national average.
Andrea Smith, author of “Conquest: Sexual Violence and Native American Genocide” explains the connection between violence against women, and the colonization of native lands and bodies.
Trigger Warning: Andrea Smith’s presentation includes descriptions of racial and sexual violence, so please be forewarned.
