MMIW = Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, it has become such a common tragedy that we even made an acronym for it. Mostly fueling human and sex traficking industries.

Neil, I'm listening in from Ireland and similar to Lyla you have moved me intensely. Speaking of the trail of tears, here's some history for the group as in 1847, when the Choctaws—who had only recently arrived over the ruinous “trail of tears and death” to what is now Oklahoma—took up a donation and collected over $5,000 (in today’s money) to support the Irish during the Potato Famine. Imagine the moral strength of those survivors and this is widely know and appreciated generations later here in Ireland. Thank you for today's conversation - I'm so glad I joined.
Eden (she|her)
01:59:58
Democracy, feminism… Yes, Michelle!
