Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water. Colonization continues through attacks to Indigenous rights and damage to the land and water. We must repair these violations, live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship, work towards justice in action, and protect Mother Earth.

On December 10th, Indigenous people and allies stood in solidarity across Canada to assert Indigenous sovereignty and begin the work towards sustainable, renewable development. All people will be affected by the continued damage to the land and water and we welcome Indigenous and non-Indigenous allies to join in creating healthy sustainable communities. We encourage youth to become engaged in this movement as you are the leaders of our future.

There have always been individuals and groups who have been working towards these goals – Idle No More seeks to create solidarity and further support these goals. We recognize that there may be backlash, and encourage people to stay strong and united in spirit.

This movement started in Canada as a peaceful demonstration between tribes and government. It spread as people world wide stood in solidarity for the Canadian government to honor treaty rights. It has become bigger than that. These violations have direct bearing on the protection,or lack there of, of our waters and land. If we don’t stand up as one people and start protecting our earth’s greatest resources we are dooming our future generations. It is an important movement and it has been our honor to be a part of this important message.

A collection of studio portraits from the project can be seen at the JT Pro Imaging blog.
