The Fading Dream to Liberate Africa’s Last Colony
"The hardest thing is when people ask me where I'm from," Najla Mohamedlamin Salma, 27, tells me. "It's such a long story."

With her rich North African accent and colorful hijab, Najla cuts an anomalous figure on the streets of suburban Bellingham, Washington. She is a new arrival to this quiet, mostly white city, yet the effusive young woman is accustomed to life as an outsider. Najla came of age in exile alongside 165,000 fellow Saharawi refugees clinging defiantly to life in the brutal Sahara Desert. Growing up in a desolate corner of southern Algeria, Najla was raised on elders’ stories of their lost homeland, the Western Sahara, a resource-rich swath of land under Moroccan control since 1976. Widely considered "the last colony in Africa," the Western Sahara has been categorized as a "non-self-governing territory" by the United Nations since 1963, listed alongside Guam and the Falkland Islands as remnants of European imperialism.
