The winter we danced : voices from the past, the future, and the Idle No More

Friday, 24 October, 2014

@TitleThe Winter We Danced is a vivid collection of writing, poetry, lyrics, art and images from the many diverse voices that make up the past, present, and future of the Idle No More movement. Calling for pathways into healthy, just, equitable and sustainable communities while drawing on a wide-ranging body of narratives, journalism, editorials and creative pieces, this collection consolidates some of the most powerful, creative and insightful moments from the winter we danced and gestures towards next steps in an on-going movement for justice and Indigenous self-determination.

We live in the age of answers. The ancient library at Alexandria was believed to hold the world’s entire store of knowledge.
