Kneeling for missing, murdered indigenous women


Many people have seen the kneels that National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers has taken during the national anthem to protest racial oppression and police brutality in the United States.

Since Kaepernick’s gesture gained widespread attention in late August, teams at various levels in several sports have followed his example.
