Everything about Loretta Saunders' death makes me so, so sad and so angry. Here
is a heartbreaking piece by her thesis supervisor talking about how Saunders' death is a continuation of colonial violence.
I refuse to speculate about Loretta’s death. What I do know is that our society has discarded indigenous women and girls in much the same manner for generations. These people were playing out a script that we all know intimately, but never acknowledge. I told a good friend of mine yesterday that there’s no conspiracy, there’s no mystery, Loretta will show up in a ditch like so many indigenous women before her. He was taken aback. I told him that’s the pattern.
