A young Métis man hunting for ducks on his ancestors’ traditional territory near Fort Chipewyan. As recently as the 1960’s, the First Nation reserve of Fort McKay, on the Athabasca River in northern Alberta’s boreal forest, had no running water, the people lived in shacks, and there were no roads connecting it to the rest of Canada. They sustained themselves through hunting and trapping, as their ancestors had for thousands of years. But as 83-year-old elder Zackary Powder says, “It’s not like it used to be. Everything has changed.” • • Photography by Ian Willms, @ianwillms, a member of the Boreal Collective, @borealcollective. • • #clashofthecanadians #environment #oilsands #space #government #energy #cleanenergy #firstnation #native #indigenous #aboriginal #nativeamericans #snow #gold #canada #hunting #northernlights #Chipewyan #ice #aurora #fortmckay #alberta #waterislife #winter #forest #borealcollective #photooftheday #narratively

One of the best things about life in #Indonesia is the friendships it fosters, friendships that seem to exceed time and borders. Amazing to meet again with my friend Self and his partner Charlotte. I first met Self 8 years ago when he was undertaking an journey from #Sabang to #merauke by #motorcycle. Self is now working as a lawyer in Australia for a non-profit representing #indigenous #aboriginal communities in Australia. Amazing to see how our experiences all those years ago have coalesced into a shared passion for the importance that indigenous peoples and #rights have as something essential for us all as human beings sharing this this 'blue dot' we call home. . Thanks again to @hoipolloibali, one of my go-to spots for great food, #craftbeer and good conversations in #Bali.

The number of U.S. hate groups keeps surging, largely thanks to young, white men The number of hate groups nationwide reached a record high in 2018, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. The number of hate groups nationwide reached a record high in 2018, driven partly by the persistent growth of white nationalist groups catering to young, college-aged men. There are currently 1,020 active hate groups in America — up from 954 in 2017, and 917 the previous year, according to an annual tally by the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC). The new, young face of hate emerged from the shadows during the 2016 election and organized through a shared language of memes and under the banner of the “alt-right.” Many hailed then-candidate Donald Trump, with his hard-line views on immigration, as a hero. In celebration of his election, the alt-right’s one-time de facto leader Richard Spencer led a room full of young men in suits to give Nazi salutes.

‘I am dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on earth’: A self-proclaimed white nationalist planned a mass terrorist attack, the government says A U.S. Coast Guard lieutenant and self-identified white nationalist was arrested after federal investigators uncovered a cache of weapons and ammunition in his Maryland home that authorities say he stockpiled to launch a widespread domestic terrorist attack targeting politicians and journalists. Christopher Paul Hasson called for “focused violence” to “establish a white homeland” and said, “I am dreaming of a way to kill almost every last person on the earth,” according to court records filed in U.S. District Court in Maryland. Though court documents do not detail a specific planned date for an attack, the government said he had been amassing supplies and weapons since at least 2017, developed a spreadsheet of targets that included House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and searched the Internet using phrases such as “best place in dc to see congress people” and “are supreme court justices protected.” “The defendant intends to murder innocent civilians on a scale rarely seen in this country,” the government said in court documents filed this week, arguing that Hasson should stay in jail awaiting trial. Hasson, 49, of Silver Spring, is expected to appear before a judge for a detention hearing in federal court in Greenbelt at 1 p.m. Thursday.
