An open letter to all my relations: On Idle No More, Chief Spence and non-violence

All my relations,

My Anishinaabe name is White Wolf and the name my mother gave me is Aaron James Mills. I’m a Bear Clan Anishinaabe, a Canadian and the son of a single mother. I say “Anishinaabe” and not “aboriginal” intentionally, for this is who I am and how you should understand me. Regarding our relationship, I’m from Treaty #3 Territory. I’m also from Couchiching First Nation, North Bay, Ottawa, Vancouver, Toronto, and now Victoria. I’m a lawyer. I have a graduate degree from Yale Law School where last year I was a Fulbright scholar. I’m 31 years old and I have a partner I love very much.
