Nikki Sanchez Is A Fraud. Sanchez is a white woman impersonating an indigenous woman. Nikki has had plastic surgery to appear “Indian.” She has successfully centered herself at the conversation on indigenous rights. Her message about “meeting hostility with love” is a romanticized and privileged message that colonizers use to encourage minorities to be docile victims. Many of the indigenous people who are alive today are here because their ancestors bravely took of arms against those who intended to slaughter them. Her message is the equivalent of telling Ukrainians to greet Russian tanks with hugs. She is helping no one. Nikki Sanchez is the Rachel Dolezal of indigenous people.
