Idle No More: Non-Indigenous responsibility to act | rabble.ca

Idle No More: Non-Indigenous responsibility to act | rabble.ca | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

I encourage all non-Indigenous people to:

-Know the history and the stories of elders of what has happened on this territory.

-Place decolonization at the centre of all progressive/social justice organizing you do.

-Read and understand the Indian Act and how this racist piece of legislation is used today.

-Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Be humble. Walk softly. Be kind. Be bold.

 

-Nora Loreto
