Performativity of Time, Movement and Voice in Idle No More

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • As is apparent from the ‘we’ in the title and the long list of editors, The Winter We Danced is as much a collective of voices as it is a collection of authors. The ‘we’ assembled here all share a connection to the Idle No More (INM) movement. This movement began in November 2012 as an Aboriginal response to a Canadian federal government bill that eroded indigenous sovereignty and environmental protections. INM continued to grow –often using social media for expression and coordination – with hundreds of rallies, teach-ins and protests resisting neo-colonialism (Idle No More n.d.).
