A smudging ceremony on Cote First Nation, Saskatchewan. Performed to cleanse a place of it's negative energy, it was organized by Stanley Cote, a member of the Winnipeg based First Nation Indigenous Warriors, and the American Indian Movement, a civil rights organization with chapters across North America. They travelled to Cote to lend support to a community that has been shaken by a string of suicides, violent deaths and overdoses in recent years. Half way through the walk, the group stopped at the place where Stanley's 19 year-old son Tre was accused of beating 24 year-old Freedom Gladue to death this past February. Some of Freedom's relatives held each other and sobbed as Stanley and others said a prayer.
Displaced by Fighting in Helmand
Khan Mohammed, a young boy who fled fighting in Sangin, Helmand Province shortly after his father was killed during fighting between Taliban and government forces in January of 2016. His family said Daesh (ISIS) were also participating in the fighting. Khan is now living in an IDP camp on the outskirts of Kabul. Afghan forces, backed by Western fighter planes and special forces, had been struggling to repel a Taliban siege in Sangin for weeks. More than 900 coalition soldiers were killed in Helmand during the 13 year Operation Enduring Freedom.
