From a grassroots hashtag to a real opportunity for change - Winnipeg Free Press

From a grassroots hashtag to a real opportunity for change - Winnipeg Free Press | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"When First Nations chiefs angry with the federal omnibus budget Bill C-45 scuffled briefly with RCMP on Parliament Hill on Tuesday, it certainly made for compelling images. It also raised some compelling questions. Are we seeing a renewed militancy in the aboriginal community? Is this a "tipping point" of sorts? What can we expect next? To me, the most interesting question is what was the catalyst for this showdown?

 

It was actually a simple message, likely unintelligible unless you are an avid Twitter user:

"Tweeting up on Sunday, December 2, the #IdleNoMore event in Alberta. Lets get it trending! Here is the FB event..."

 

......

What is the lasting impact of the "#idlenomore" hashtag? Will it be as momentous as the "#jan26" hashtag that started the protests in Egypt that led to Hosni Mubarak's removal from power? Or is it just another online fad that will come and go?

 

The hashtag "#Idlenomore" did not stop bill C-45. It ended up passing unamended. The true impact, however, is that it showed grassroots aboriginal people they can influence their leaders through social media."

New Mexico Librarians Use Lyric Analysis To Examine Indigenous Hip-Hop

New Mexico Librarians Use Lyric Analysis To Examine Indigenous Hip-Hop | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it
Delores Tucker is often remembered for her criticism of “gangsta rap,” but she can also be credited with prompting a new form of hip-hop scholarship. In 1997 the activist and politician used several Tupac Shakur lyrics to issue a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the artist’s estate. Teresa Neely, then a doctoral student, heard the news and recognized the lyrics as being taken out of context. To her it was a sign that Shakur’s words needed to be studied as a whole to be understood.

Canada 150 : découvrez les 3 projets phares de l'ONF | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

Découvrez les trois projets phares de l'ONF qui seront lancés officiellement en 2017 à l'occasion de Canada 150.


Aabiziingwashi* (Bien éveillés) : Le cinéma autochtone en tournée Regards autochtones sur le Canada 


Aabiziingwashi (Bien éveillés) : Le cinéma autochtone en tournée est une série de projections pancanadiennes mettant en vedette les œuvres exceptionnelles de cinéastes autochtones produites par l’ONF. Des invités spéciaux assisteront à certains événements et prendront part aux débats qui suivront les projections. La série aborde plusieurs des grands thèmes du cinéma autochtone canadien — colonisation, résistance, résurgence culturelle — et vise à rapprocher les Autochtones et les non-Autochtones d’ici. Les nouveaux films au cœur de cette tournée sont notamment On ne peut pas faire deux fois la même erreur, le plus récent documentaire de l’éminente cinéaste Alanis Obomsawin, qui s’intéresse cette fois à une poursuite judiciaire historique dénonçant le sous-financement systémique des services d’aide aux familles et à l’enfance offerts aux enfants des Premières Nations ; Inuk en colère, le long métrage maintes fois primé d’Alethea Arnaquq-Baril exposant les répercussions sur les communautés inuites des campagnes menées par les opposants à la chasse au phoque ; The Road Forward, le long métrage documentaire musical de Marie Clements sur le militantisme autochtone en Colombie-Britannique ; et Birth of a Family, dans lequel Tasha Hubbard nous convie à la première rencontre de trois sœurs et un frère séparés en bas âge et nous sensibilise aux conséquences des terribles rafles des années 1960. La série de projections présente aussi des films phares de notre collection de plus de 250 œuvres de réalisateurs autochtones.

Saskatoon Library Launches Read for Reconciliation Space

Saskatoon Library Launches Read for Reconciliation Space | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it
Since the last of Canada’s Indian residential schools closed in 1996, the nation has been attempting to shape a response to the legacy of abuse that the residential school system—which removed native children from their homes and families—inflicted on its Indigenous Peoples. Saskatoon Public Library (SPL), Saskatchewan, has become the first public library to incorporate a space permanently dedicated to truth and reconciliation. On November 21 SPL’s Frances Morrison Central Library opened the Read for Reconciliation reading area, which includes a full set of the reports compiled by the TRC over five years, plus a variety of books about Canada’s history of residential schools, as well as an extensive reading list on the history and legacy of residential schools in Canada on its homepage.
