An unexpected side-effect of the 2010 flooding in parts of Sindh, Pakistan, was that millions of spiders climbed up into the trees to escape the rising flood waters; because of the scale of the flooding and the fact that the water took so long to recede, many trees became cocooned in spiders webs.
Justice demands that people can name themselves. Inuit, Aluet, Alutiq, Tlingit, Haida, Tsimshian, Yup'ik, Cup'ik, Iñupiat, and other First Nations should be used in place of the "E" word which is an offensive term applied by terrorists who treated First Nations with utmost disdain and sought to disparage them by robbing them of their names, locking their children in schools of abuse away from their parents and despoiling all their lands. Surely, the name those barbarians gave, should not stand.
