Colonizing ideals and forms of governing are slowly being revealed and rejected by citizens around the world. Talking and listening to people is important. It is time to heal damaging resource extraction, and honour Indigenous people's legal treaty rights. Heal abusive violations, live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship. A call for truth and justice in action, reconciliation in words and actions, heart based protection of Mother Earth and her population reliant on her for life.

The Idle No More Movement started in Canada as a peaceful demonstration between tribes and government in December 2012. It spread as people world wide stood in solidarity for the Canadian government to honor treaty rights. These violations have direct bearing on the protection of our waters and land. If we don’t stand up as one people and start protecting our Earth’s greatest resources we are letting our future generations down.
