Dawson Creek round dance in support of Idle No More

Idle No More has sparked several events across the country, in protest of several changes in the federal omnibus legislation Bill C-45.

Down in Dawson Creek, traditional drummer Theresa Gladue and her group led the procession, while participants linked arms and danced in a clockwise circle around some vendors for approximately 15 minutes. Two children stood in the middle of the circle with signs showing solidarity for Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, who is on day 23 of a hunger strike, and the Idle No More movement.
Chief Spence is asking for a face-to-face meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper to discuss Aboriginal issues.
