“We are not creating anything new – we are building on the work that has already been done for 500 years. We are not saying anything new – we are just carrying on the teachings of the people who came before us.“ - Roger Fernandes, from the Klallam and Makah people Idle No More rally in Seattle, WA January 12, 2013 It would be no surprise to say that 500-year-old campaigns such as this go through periods of lull. For the Irish, it took 500 years for the British to conquer them, and another 500 to kick them out (of sorts). But on a patchy blue Saturday afternoon with the air biting at our skin, natives representing tribes of the Pacific Northwest were hootin’ and cooin’ and lamenting and singing as they joined, in spirited empathy for what has become a dwelling of solidarity for aboriginal peoples globally, the movement of Idle No More. - Michael Schmautz Here is the 2nd article on Juxt about Idle No More. BP asked a few folks to participate in documenting the Seattle solidarity rallies; @shaunacausey and @royce_venson both share their beautiful photos in this article. This article provides interviews with Pacific Northwest Tribe members and gives a perspective of an outsider to the community being welcome to join in the movement. We hope you enjoy this approach and would love to hear your feedback. Click on the link in our profile to read the full article. Photo by Shauna Causey
