Idle No More has quickly become one of the largest indigenous mass movements in Canadian history - sparking hundreds of teach-ins, rallies, and protests across Turtle Island and beyond. What began as a series of teach-ins throughout Saskatchewan to protest impending parliamentary bills that will erode Indigenous sovereignty and environmental protections, has now changed the social and political landscape of Canada.
The impetus for Idle No More events lies in a centuries old resistance as Indigenous nations and their land suffered the impacts of exploration, invasion and colonization. Idle No More seeks to assert Indigenous inherent rights to sovereignty and re-institute traditional laws and Nation to Nation Treaties by protecting the lands and waters from corporate destruction.
Rose Henry, a First Nations activist and educator will speak on Idle No More.
