Whapmagoostui youth head out in support of Idle No More

youth.JPGSeven young members of the James Bay Cree have set out on a long walk from Wapmagoostui to Ottawa. They're calling it the Journey of Nishiyuu -- the Quest for Unity -- in support of the Idle No More movement. Former Grand Council chief Matthew Mukash tells Quebec Am why he joined them on the first day of the journey.

Cree Radio CBC also spoke with David Kawapit, one of the members of the walk, before they left on January 16. Listen to the interview here (in Cree and English).

We've also managed to reach the journey's instigator David Kawapit this morning via satelite phone as the group is about to set out toward Chisasibi.
