Schools that continue to use Indian imagery and references claim that their use stimulates interest in Native American culture and honors Native Americans. These institutions have simply failed to listen to the Native groups, religious leaders, and civil rights organizations that oppose these symbols. These Indian-based symbols and team names are not accurate representations of Native Americans.

Idle No More - PRESS RELEASE December 2012

Idle No More began with 4 women, Nina Wilson, Sheelah Mclean, Sylvia McAdam and Jessica Gordon, sharing a vision of bringing together all people to ensure we create ways of protecting Mother Earth, her lands, waters and people. The women began discussing the possible impacts that some of the legislation would carry if people do not do something. It became very evident that the women MUST do something about the colonial, unilateral and paternalistic legislation being pushed through the Government of Canada’s parliamentary system.

Help Spread the Word of IDLE NO MORE

Two decades ago, Indigenous resistance to colonialism moved Canada to establish the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP). The goal of the commission was to establish the steps necessary for restoring a just relationship between Canada and Indigenous peoples.

~ Resetting and Restoring the Relationship between Indigenous Peoples and Canada
