Our Time Is Now: A Call To Action

Idle No More Banner

We the young leaders wish to stand with our Women, Elders and Leaders from across the country. The resilience of our people’s continues in the face of Canadian Ignorance, Misunderstanding and Indifference. We will never forget our responsibility to the grandmothers and grandfathers that are yet to be born.

Erosion of our economies, malicious corporate enterprise and the willful neglect of our natural resources has created an unsustainable future. As a father, brother, nephew, grandson and son the responsibility has never been more clear. Together we must #IdleNoMore!!!

Our sacred agreements that we made in the presence of Gitchi-Manito are being disregarded. Every file in our communities is under attack: Health, Education, Social Welfare, Housing to name a few…

Many politicians will point the finger but we must focus on lasting solutions. We have become stagnant as the divide and conquer strategies become utilized by our own people. The shackles of colonial injustice has taken hold of us, many have forgotten who they are but together we shall prevail is finding lasting, practical solutions…

In good faith, through prayer and in honor of our mother, let our peoples come together once more to take action, in its many shapes and forms!!!!

Join us relatives as we embark on a struggle to continue momentum, raise awareness and coordinate our efforts… OUR TIME IS NOW!!!

PEACE. FRIENDSHIP. RESPECT.

In the pursuit of balance,

Jerry K. Daniels
