Honour the Treaties - NO to F.N.E.A. - Idle No more Blood Tribe

Idle No More Blood Tribe joined thousands of other First Nations, and supporters, across Canada on December 10, 2012 with a walk and a rally. This date marked the United Nations Human Rights Day and was the first of many calls to action. We hope to mark our one year anniversary with a similar event tracing the same route in Standoff from the Ice Rink to Red Crow Park with speakers highlighting the importance of stopping the First Nations Education Act.

Everyone is welcome.

12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
(duration dependent on weather/temperature)

Please bring your signs and dress warmly.

Lunches will be served and mint tea will be available.

(Apologies for the short notice, the storm delayed our planning efforts.)

December 10, 2013 at 12pm - 2pm

    CANCELLED until further notice**** (Dec. 9/13) Reserve schools and offices are closed or are being closed. Weather warnings extend into tomorrow and driving conditions are very bad. Also, we are drifted in, most likely so are many others (we probably can’t get out until the grader makes it through). We were hoping that the forecasts we heard last week (which called for warmer weather today) would come about. Sadly that is not the reality. We’ve had much difficulty contacting people from various departments due to the weather last week. Today was our last hope to finally speak to some, but that hope is now gone. Red Crow Park (arbor) was to be cleared of snow, but this morning we found out that B.T. Recreations tractor is frozen and there are still big drifts getting into and out of the arbor area. Also, the tent we were going to utilize is frozen under a big drift and cannot be dug out. We also wanted to involve as many students as possible since our focus was on the First Nations Education Act, but most schools have been closed last week and again today. Many APOLOGIES but completely out of our control. We still want to plan an event, but we are not quite sure what? We are open to suggestions. Thanks.
