These tattoos were traditionally inscribed on women’s skin by women’s hands to commemorate various achievements and points in a woman’s life, such as one’s first menstrual period, the mastery of a new skill and childbirth. But as Western colonization swept Alaska in the 19th and 20th centuries, including the establishment of boarding schools where indigenous languages would not be spoken, many Alaska Natives were prohibited from practicing the rituals that had bound them to one another.

As Americans lose faith in government institutions, this appointment to “the highest court in the land” has become a symbol of something much bigger. If he’s caught out in even one lie, it’s over.

الامر لا يتطلب شيئا، سوى المشي في تلك الشوارع المعزولة المفصولة “المطهرة” من السكان الأصليين.

كيف لا تقوم وزارة السياحة بعمل زيارات وتعبئة دائمة لتلك الجرائم المرتكبة يوميا في الخليل؟
كيف لا تكون الخليل عنوان كل اشتباك دبلوماسي؟
