See the dark blue in Arizona? That is where the Native Americans are.

Just incredibly awesome, but so, so sadly true.

A Life Revealed

A Life Revealed | Teachers Toolbox | Scoop.it
Seventeen years after she stared out from the cover of National Geographic, a former Afghan refugee comes face-to-face with the world once more.

 

The original cover is one of the more famous National Geographic photos of all time, and yet the woman in the photograph has not lived a life as though millions of people could recognize her eyes.  This is her story.

But by looking at the photo we can see the beauty out of all the pain.
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, December 15, 2013 10:49 PM

This photo is in Rome, where there is an exhibit based on NGS photos, and in Las Vegas as well. In both places the lines were long to get in.

Jess Deady's curator insight, May 4, 7:00 AM

This is basically a publicity stunt. When someone puts a specific cover on a magazine, they are looking for a certain kind of attention. Yes, this woman has faced some hardships in her life but not the brutal and intense things that this magazine may have stirred up.

Ms. Harrington's insight:

Qatar's high migrant population is a result of its oil reserves and need for labor.

Jordan Schemmel's curator insight, May 21, 10:03 AM

Do migrant workers have the same rights as native workers? This continuing set of issues from Qatar brings that question to the forefront as they prepare to host the 2022 World Cup.

Whitney Souery's curator insight, May 28, 4:05 PM

Migrant workers often represent the minority group in a particular country, such as Qatar (in this example). As such, migrant workers often have little rights or worker securities that most often accompany other workers and protect their rights; however, with the current immigrant explosion in Qatar as a result of the booming oil industry, it is easy for these migrant workers to be exploited and unaccounted for.
