Honour The Treaties Solidarity Round Dance Gallery

Cold weather but warm people

Drummers

 

Drummers brave the cold in Winnipeg. 

 

By Trevor Greyeyes

Over 200 people gathered on a frigid Manitoba winter's night to Round Dance in front of the Winnipeg Concert Hall where Neil Young was scheduled to perform at a fundraising concert for First Nations fighting court battles to have treaty obligations recognized.

 

Much has been written and Young has faced heavy criticism in the mainstream media for his support of First Nations and his outspoken criticism of oil development.

However, this was a chance for First Nation peoples through Idle No More Winnipeg to show their support.
