Assimilating Canadians into the wisdom of Indigenous ancestors

This year, the Idle No More movement called for Earth Day rallies to focus attention on the links between Indigenous issues and the environmental movement. 

Events leading up to Earth Day included an impressive 'Nation2Nation' (N2N) dialogue between Haudenosaunee and Anishnawbeg leaders like Ellen Gabriel and Leanne Simpson and Canadian activist Naomi Klein in Toronto. (Watch videos of this event here and here.)

Earth Day 2013: Land for food under attack worldwide
