"Its us non-natives that have been Idle" Settlers in Solidarity with Land Defenders

by Zach RuiterLindsay Montour

See video

In this video you will hear from settlers who are in solidarity with Idle No More and grassroots land defenders from Six Nations, Luke Stewart of the April 28th Coalition for Peace, Respect, and Friendship, argues "as the court system shows, it is not the Six Nations that have been idle, it is us non-natives that have been idle, and it is time that we start living these agreements, its a time that we start understanding our relationship on this land, and in this water, and it is time that we take responsibility like we are today, to show support for those who are criminalized by this injustice by this criminal Canadian state"

"The nation to nation agreement we have as indigenous people with the settler nations suggests that we don't govern each other" said Giibwanisi Dizhikaaz of the Oshkimaadziig Unity Camp and Reclamation site, "I am supporting Toad, from land defender to land defender"
