The Inconvenient Indian
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.
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.
