A friendship dance.
Holding hands in a circle.
Drums beating or maybe just
some hands clapping the rhythm
I'm so happy to see a round dance
surprise the cbc audience

Here's a link to a clip from cbc
television of Wab Kinew apparently improvising a flash mob round dance on the
George Tonight show with George Stroumboulopoulos.
You can watch the
round dance segment at this link, or if you tune into the show tonight (Monday)
after the news you can see the whole interview, in which Wab talks to George
about Idle No More, and about how all Canadians are treaty people.
this is empowering to see how the Idle No More movement is about celebrating
Aboriginal culture too, and about inviting solidarity with non-Aboriginal
allies. We often see the INM events presented solely as protest, but they are
much more positive than that.
Here's our Round Dance on the intersection between Highway #10 and #35 in Fort Qu'Appelle, January 11th, 2013
