Idle No More Movement: Healing Walk

 

Idle No More
Anna —

“Clearcutting has destroyed our lands to the point that we are unable to hunt, fish or gather medicines and berries – everything we need to sustain our health and cultures” Kurtis McAdam (Saysewahum), Idle No More organizer and Trap Line Holder

Idle No More and Defenders of the Land call on all people to join in solidarity to address ongoing land destruction. Clearcutting and deforestation contribute to climate change.

On July 1st, 2016, Idle No More and Defenders of the Land will host a Healing Walk to bring awareness and attention to destructive clearcutting on hunting lands within Treaty 6 Territory. This clearcutting of old growth boreal forest is in direct violation of Treaty 6 that protects hunting, fishing and gathering rights of First Nations people. Clearcutting destroys biodiversity, animal habitats and waterways. It causes generational destruction impacting all people, but in particular First Nations peoples, who depend on the land for food, cultural practices and for its spiritual significance.

Please join us in solidarity on July 1st to bring awareness and attention to this important issue and to pressure our leadership to #SaveBorealForest. You will find event updates on the Facebook Event Page Here.
