Bill Breakdown for Dummies

More information about Idle No More can be found at the official website

Below are documents outlining the current bills which Idle No More is fighting against in Canada. They attack indigenous sovereignty, fail to fulfill treaty obligations, and threaten the environment for all Canadians – the effects of which will be felt across borders if it is not stopped. Please take some time to inform yourselves.

The video is an extremely informative snap-shot of what the indigenous people are up against. Russ Diabo reviews the Indian Act, history of Treaty obligations, and how the government is failing to honour them. Well worth the listen.

  1. Thank you Drummer! I am a US non Native who stands in Slidarity with Idle No More. As you, I am doing all I can to help educate my fellow non Natives about these extremely important issues. I have followed you on Twitter. I am @L2HT

Tribal Voice

Ever wondered what life's like in a remote tribal community? What tribal people have to say about the world? Tribal Voice, a project by Survival International, brings the thoughts and experiences of some of the most diverse societies on earth direct to your screen in real time. We're kicking off the project with tribes in Brazil. The Guarani, whose land has been stolen and destroyed by plantations and ranches, are now sending regular updates about their lives, and their struggle to survive. It's time to listen.
