Roundtable: Idle No More - Six Nations

This is a roundtable discussion from early January 2013 with Haudenosaunee (Six Nations) youth Dakota Brant, Lester Green, and John Henhawk who discuss the Idle No More movement from the local reserve level to the national movement, noting the importance of strong womyn, youth, and grassroots people in starting and maintaining this movement.  The youth discuss native-settler relationships while framing the IdleNoMore movement in terms of responsibility to the land, the treaties, and to the future generations on turtle Island.

for more Idle no more check out the website and past AW@L Radio broadcasts.

this also includes the hip hop track - The Apology a collaboration from Henny Jack, Tru Rez members Chief Mojo, Siance and James Blood, and Karboard Kid and Pete Nyce all from Six Nations and MC Sage from Warpole Island.  The song is dedicated to the 50000+ missing indigenous children, a legacy of canada's racist residential school system, and to all those around the world who may have lost loved ones.


this roundtable was facilitated by Luke Stewart of the Grand River Media Collective. and was first broadcast on the weekly 2 hour AW@L radio (16:00-18:00est) on CKMS 100.3FM CKMS * Community * Co-op * Campus * Radio - Waterloo -
