Native Americans at Greatest Risk of Police Violence ~ Native Lives Matter

In the United States, Native Americans experience disproportionately high amounts of violence from law enforcement.

Native Americans ages 20–24, 25–34, and 35–44 are three of the five groups most likely to be killed by police (the others are Black people 20–24 and 25–34).  This makes Native Americans more likely than any other racial group to be killed by police despite the fact that they only make up 1.2% of the population of the United States.

Native Americans are 3.1 times more likely than white Americans to be killed by police. Police brutality, especially killings, are underreported, however, because officer’s frequently visually assess race and Native Americans are often mistaken for Black, White, or Hispanic.

Unitarianism (from Latin unitas “unity, oneness”, from unus “one”) is a Christian theological movement named for its belief that the God in Christianity is one person, as opposed to the Trinity (tri- from Latin tres “three”) which in many other branches of Christianity defines God as three persons in one being: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.[1] Unitarian Christians, therefore, believe that Jesus was inspired by God in his moral teachings, and he is a savior,[2][3] but he was not a deity or God incarnate. Unitarianism does not constitute one single Christian denomination, but rather refers to a collection of both extant and extinct Christian groups, whether historically related to each other or not, which share a common theological concept of the oneness nature of God.
