The “Idle No More” movement got its start in Saskatchewan, Canada with the passage of Bill C-45, an omnibus package that included a reduction in the amount of federally-protected waterways and a fast-tracked process to surrender reserve lands.
The movement began when organizers said a majority of Canadian tribal members didn’t speak out about the bill.
