CULTURE

Indigenous Culture Reasserts Women’s Power Through Dance

“Native American women and girls are two and a half times more likely to experience sexual violence compared to other races. The truth is, however, that it’s been open season on Native women and girls’ sexuality for the last 500 years. For me, this is personal. My mother, and women of her generation, survived poverty, brutal men, sexual violence, and Indian boarding schools.

How Our Makeup Puts Children in Danger

North Americans are obsessed with all things shimmery. It’s no wonder — that glow is associated with health and youth. But where does the shimmer come from?

One Year After The Las Vegas Mass Shooting, What Has Changed?

It is gut-wrenching to look at their faces — 58 of them. They were young, old, men, women, single, married, parents, and grandparents.

One year ago, on Oct. 1, they made their way to an open field in Las Vegas where, in the midst of their revelry, they were plunged into terror and cut down by bullets — more than 1100 — fired from 32 stories above their heads.
