Residents show support for widespread tribal issues

January 9, 2013

A youth-oriented public awareness movement that began with indigenous nations in Canada has made its way to the Owens Valley, prompting three local demonstrations organized by young tribal members.
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.
