I can’t sleep, and I lay and I think
The night is hot and black as ink
Oh God I need a drink…

I’m really weird about things meant to “humanize” sex workers like “yeah, she’s a stripper, but she’s also a med student with a 4.0 GPA so don’t judge her” like, okay, so, and there’s someone in that same club who dropped out of high school and is a teenage mom, does that mean she’s lesser?

A Selk’nam couple with their baby, on a ship en route to be exhibited in Europe as “wildmen”. The Selk’nam people are an indigenous tribe in the Patagonian region of Southern Argentina and Chile. Both appear to have slight damage on their ankles from cruel, probably iron, restraints. 
The fear and confusion on their face is haunting. For people who had lived a simple hunting and gathering lifestyle, with little European interaction, the rest of their lives must’ve seemed like a surreal nightmare. 

White History

Abducted by aliens.

Smh

White history

I really want to know who these people are/what happened to them

SO I DID A BIT OF DIGGING AND HOLY SHIT. THE SELK’HAM PEOPLE WERE WIPED OUT IN A MASS GENOCIDE.
LIKE… THEY ARE NO MORE. THE DESCENDENTS OF THIS COUPLE DO NOT EXIST.
AN ENTIRE LANGUAGE. AN ENTIRE CUISINE. AN ENTIRE WAY OF LIFE. WIPED AWAY.
YA’LL WANT SOME FUCKING WHITE HISTORY MONTH? HERE IS SOME GOD DAMN WHITE HISTORY FOR YOU TO PUT NEXT TO ALL THOSE SHINNY IMAGES OF THESE WHITE MEN WHO “DISCOVERED THE WORLD”.
HANG THIS IMAGE IN ALL THE DAMN CLASSROOMS. I’M DONE.

But “NOT ALL WHITE PEOPLE”, right?
Fucking monsters.

The Selknam Genocide was the genocide of the Selk’nam people, indigenous inhabitants of Tierra del Fuego in South America, from the second half of the 19th to the early 20th century. Spanning a period of between ten and fifteen years the Selk’nam, which had an estimated population of some three thousand saw their numbers reduced to 500.[1]z

The Selk’nam people, also known as the ‘Ona, were an indigenous people who inhabited the northeastern part of the archipelago of Tierra del Fuego for thousands of years before Europeans arrived. They were nomads known as “foot-people,” as they did their hunting on land, rather than being seafarers.
The last full-blooded Selk’nam, Ángela Loij, died in 1974. They were one of the last aboriginal groups in South America to be reached by Europeans. Their language, believed to be part of the Chonan family, is considered extinct as the last speakers died in the 1980s.
The Selk’nam had lived for thousands of years of semi-nomadic life in Isla Grande de Tierra del Fuego (literally, “big island of land of fire;” its name was based on early Spanish explorers’ observations of smoke from Selk’nam bonfires.) They lived in the northeast, with the Haush people to their east on the Mitre Peninsula, and the Yaghan people to the west and south, in the central part of the main island and throughout southern islands of the archipelago.
In the 1880s, British introduced sheep ranches to the large open areas of Tierra del Fuego. Numerous British immigrants arrived to work in the new industry, some remain in Falkland Islands. The ranches created strong conflicts with the Selk’nam natives, who had traditionally hunted this territory and considered the sheep game. They had no concept of European property rights. The large ranchers tried to run off the Selk’nam, then began a campaign of extermination against them, with the compliance of the Argentine and Chilean governments. Large companies paid sheep farmers or militia one pound sterling per Selk’nam dead, which was confirmed by the redemption of a pair of hands or ears, or later a complete skull.
Repression against the Selk’nam persisted into the early twentieth century.[2] Chile moved some Selk’nam to Dawson Island, confining them in an internment or concentration camp. Argentina finally allowed Salesian missionaries to aid the Selk’nam and attempt to assimilate them, but their culture and people were largely destroyed.
According to the 2010 United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Atlas of the World’s Languages in Danger, the Ona language is extinct, as the last speakers died in the 1980s.[3]
