Honour Your Word is a new documentary film – an intimate portrait of life behind the barricades for the Algonquins of Barriere Lake, an inspiring First Nation whose dignity and courage contrast sharply with the political injustice they face.
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.)
