Idle No More is a movement founded by four women, Sylvia McAdam, Jess Gordon, Nina Wilson and Sheelah Mclean who decided they could no longer stay silent in the face of what they saw as a legislative attack on First Nation people and the lands and waters across Canada.
They built a movement of thousands – indigenous and non-indigenous people – in Canada and supporters around the world standing up to fight tar sands, deforestation, mining and other industrial development on First Nation lands.
Happy International Women’s Day!
