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 http://idlenomore.ca 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 - http://soundfm.ca

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
