Idle No More + Defenders of the Land
January 28, 2014
Idle No More— As we begin a new year, we invite Idle No More groups to organize local teach-ins on January 28th based around the First Nation Education Act and the broader Termination Plan that it represents. We recognize that every Nation and community has their own unique stories, struggles, and practices and we hope that every teach-in is rooted in the on-the-ground realities that are the heart of the movement. When we include our local allies and supporters to attend, help, and promote local teach-ins we believe this adds strength to the bundle of arrows we continue to build through education.
As a support to teach-in organizers we are developing educational tools to use at local teach-ins that will focus on the First Nation Education Act and the broader Termination Plan of the Canadian government. Please feel free to use these tools, or to develop your own! We are also hoping that each teach-in will create a quick list of local struggles or issues and that we can share these lists to help guide the Idle No More movement.
We need to support one another as we continue to fight for our lands, water, sovereignty, and our future generations. We hope that these teach-ins help to deepen and strengthen our roots and prepare us for the work that lies ahead.
