Indigenous Student Explains Why She Is Active In Idle No More

The idea that some lives matter less than others is the foundation of my activism

Erica Violet Lee a student who is active with Idle No More speaks at Saskatoon Change Makers, January 31st, 2014, at the Roxy Theatre in Saskatoon, SK.  She describes why she has become active, why she defines herself as a student and the strength she gets from hanging out with aboriginal youth and talking with elders.  Being active is something you have to do to survive.  It is not a hobby on the side. We are all relations from the tiniest turtle to people on the other side of the world.
