Why Now? Putting Idle No More in Context
With Hayden King
The Idle No More movement has captured the attention of people across the country and beyond, and elevated the Indigenous-non-Indigenous relationship to the main stage of public life in Canada. Where did the movement originate? What provoked the original protests? Why has it been so successful? What makes it distinctive from Indigenous mobilization of the past? Our conversation will provide the much-needed historical and political context for this dramatic event.
