Great Basin Indigenous Women lead Reno Women’s March (photo gallery)
RENO, Nev. — Thousands of women (and men) took part in the second annual Women’s March in downtown Reno the morning of Jan. 20.
What made the Reno march unique from the rest of the marches happening the same day across the country was the fact a strong group of Great Basin Indigenous women led the march in an effort to raise awareness for the issue of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.
First Nation’s Focus photographer Brad Coman attended the march. Check out some of his images above.
The phrase “Indian Education” itself invokes generations of federal legislation aimed to assimilate via education. Modern day, the Title VI Indian Education Program administered by the Bureau of Indian Education provides federal funds to various educational institutions of students enrolled in federally recognized tribes.
