A photograph from the 1870’s showing tens of thousands of bison skulls. They were mass slaughtered by the U.S. Army to make room for cattle and force Native American tribes into starvation.


[bolding mine]
Mass slaughter of buffalo and bison took place in Canadian territory as well, and was part of a deliberate campaign to break Indigenous resistance to (further) settler incursions onto Native land and the railroad.  The removal of the buffalo also meant that when it came time to sign treaties, the Canadian government could more or less set any terms it saw fit and Indigenous leaders basically had to comply with them or their people would freeze and starve (that’s if gov officials even bothered to translate the actual terms of the treaty at all).
The “disappearance” of the buffalo is narrativized as part of a larger myth surrounding the “disappearing Indian” whose absence clears the land for the incoming white pioneers to take their place.  The murder, destruction, slaughter of bison and buffalo was a tactic essential to the genocidal colonial project.

You guys have been asking me about healthy sweeteners. I suggest using raw honey or putting dates into a food processor making a paste that will then be stored in a mason jar. Or buy this plant-based vegan honey, Bee Free, made from apples. Listen, this is SO good you’ll forget it’s healthy. Only 4 ingredients: Organic apples, water, non-GMO vegan sugar cane and lemon juice. I use it when my green smoothies need a sweet fix or for my oatmeal and tea. Start cutting back on sugar, you have way more options! I buy this at Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s or on Amazon. Let’s keep pushing!

where more than 100,000 wild tigers roamed the forests and grasslands of asia as recently as 100 years ago, today less than 3,200 tigers remain, and of those, less than a third are breeding females. though they’re quickly disappearing from the region, their presence dates back millions of years. all modern cats originated in southeast asia.

the causes of the decline are varied: the illegal wildlife trade, where poachers earn tens of thousands of dollars per tiger selling their parts for use in traditional asian medicines; humans over hunting the tiger’s natural prey; and human encroachment on their lands, leaving tigers only tiny pockets of isolated territory and forcing them into human contact. tigers now occupy only seven percent of their historic range.

steve winter has spent a decade in search of the remaining wild tigers, from myanmar’s leech infested jungles to the forbidden realm of poachers in sumatra, in the hopes of not only documenting the majestic animals but spuring global concern through his images. the photos have now been published in “tigers forever: saving the world’s most endangered big cat,” created in collaboration with panthera, the world’s largest big cat conservation organization.

the group’s mission is to increase tiger numbers by 50 percent throughout asia over a ten year period. only six tiger subspecies remain: bengal, indochinese, malayan, sumatran, siberian, and the south-china, which exists only in captivity. all are endangered. the last cambodian tiger died out in 2010, following the extinction of the javan and caspian tigers in the 1970s and the bali tiger in the 1940s.

in contrast, at least 5,000 captive tigers are privately owned in the united states, where a patchwork of lax federal laws and little to no state mandated regulatory oversight has fulled the black market trade in body parts and meant the animals often live miserable, permanently caged lives.
