D6 In their most recent articles, Survival International has discussed the injustices faced by several indigenous cultures across the globe. The most latest articles reports the raping and sexual assault of two Marma sister of Chittagong Hill Tract by Bangladesh security forces (McEvoy, 2018). The sisters are now being held against their will in a hospital where they are guarded by police and have been refused access to familiar indigenous food brought to the hospital by well wishers (McEvoy, 2018). Not too long before this incident, in January of 2018, Peru has approved a law that allows for the construction of roads in the remote Ucayali region of the Amazon. Road building oftentimes lead to an influx of workers that could devastate several uncontacted Amazon tribes (Hill, 2018). Prior to the passing of this law, several illegal roads have already been opened, causing Amazonian rivers to be polluted with mercury (Hill, 2018). The legalization of road building poses an even greater threat to the survival of these indigenous tribes. The third latest article covers the story of the violent eviction of Sengwer tribespeople from their home and indigenous land in Embobut Forest, Kenya. The Kenya Forestry Service (KFS), funded by the EU for a water conservation project, has burned the tribespeople’s homes, killed their livestock, and forced many to live in caves or temporary structures (Kiptum, 2018).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
