    This is AWESOME. FINALLY! I turned down some white woman who wanted to make a name for herself by using the Idle No More story to make a documentary. I am TIRED of being victims of exploitation. It’s time we tell our own stories. When other people tell them it’s usually to help them, not to help us or they simply get it wrong because they don’t understand our ways. I am promoting this page.
