Niigaan - a conversation about where Idle No More is headed next

niigaan.jpgMany credit Chief Theresa Spence of Attawapiskat's hunger strike last year with igniting the early sparks of the Idle No More movement. Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary of the start of the strike, and over at the NAC, an event will look back on where Idle No More has been during the past year, and where it's headed.


Joining us for a preview of that discussion were two guests -- Wab Kinew, director of Indigenous Inclusion at the University of Winnipeg, and Jocelyn Formsma, law student at University of Ottawa and an organizer of Niigaan: In Conversation, at which Wab will speak tomorrow (details here).
