Idle No More, the Song
With the Idle No More movement continuing to gain momentum, it was perhaps inevitable that someone would see the need for a rallying cry you can dance to.
Aboriginal hip hop artist and comedian Ricky Ogima has created the "Idle No More Song," and it's a catchy ditty that combines imagery from the protests with Ogima's own summary of the message, in which he name-checks Attawapiskat First Nation Chief Theresa Spence:
Some are waiting for the world to end
We come alive with a message to send
One Heartbeat across the land
Moving together to make a stand
Have you heard about Theresa Spence?
Some people think she got no sense
Sacrificing life for the people's cause
All because Government broke our laws
