Indigenous peoples experience some of the highest rates of violence and mortality at the hands of the police in this country.
Indigenous peoples often become targets of over-policing, but are neglected when support is needed. Starlight Tours is one of many calculated strategies by police, who drive Indigenous peoples to the outskirts of a town, at night, in winter. They take their clothing and abandon them in sub-zero temperatures, knowing that their actions will inevitably result in death. This policing practice dates back to 1976 and continues today.
The United Nations defines this as GENOCIDE.
