The Inconvenient Indian - Poem by Chenou Liu

A Haibun for Thomas King

Three limo-loads of corporate lawyers and accountants are heading to the airport... a Haida elder stands at the ocean's edge with the cedars at his back and the azure sky on his shoulders.

Easter morning
First Nations youth dance and chant
Idle No More...

Note: 'Idle No More' is an ongoing protest movement originating among the Aboriginal/First Nations peoples in Canada.
