Cold weather but warm people
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.
Yes, the drummers are in there somewhere.
Over 200 braved the cold to offer their support.
One woman holds a sign while participating.
People are having fun.
It's a group effort.
And coming out on the other side.
Youth offer their assistance.
Treaty 8 sign and Neil Young concert on the board.
