On December 10th, Indigenous people and allies stood in solidarity across Canada to assert Indigenous sovereignty and begin the work towards sustainable, renewable development. All people will be affected by the continued damage to the land and water and we welcome Indigenous and non-Indigenous allies to join in creating healthy sustainable communities. We encourage youth to become engaged in this movement as you are the leaders of our future. There have always been individuals and groups who have been working towards these goals – Idle No More seeks to create solidarity and further support these goals. We recognize that there may be backlash, and encourage people to stay strong and united in spirit. This is the mission statement Idle No More. http://www.idlenomore.ca
This movement started in Canada as a peaceful demonstration between tribes and government. It spread as people world wide stood in solidarity for the Canadian government to honor treaty rights. It has become bigger than that. These violations have direct bearing on the protection,or lack there of, of our waters and land. If we don’t stand up as one people and start protecting our earth’s greatest resources we are dooming our future generations. It is an important movement and it has been our honor to be a part of this important message. We hope you enjoy these photos and PSAs and encourage you all to do the following.
GET EDUCATED. This affects us all as human beings. It’s our future.
SHARE the photos and PSAs therefor spreading the word and educating others.
DO YOUR PART in protecting mother Earth.
SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY. Everyone involved in this campaign volenteered their time and talent. Take time to support their efforts…find us all on social media…let them know you think it’s important too. It’s a far greater cause than any one person but we stand stronger together. Indiginous and not, this is a human issue. Thank you for taking the time to read this blog. I know this post is not really about photography but before photographers we are human beings and we think it’s important to stand together, be positive, and always work toward the greater good.
