the cry of the indigenous people is canada's shame .....

On Saturday, Nov 12th, marking one month of occupation in St James Park, Occupy Toronto marched through the Financial District to Queen's Park in solidarity with First Nations Canadians, their native rights' struggles & land claims. Elders led the march with drums & sacred song. The young woman above, currently resident at the Occupy Toronto settlement, sings her ancestral song... seeming to have all the pain of her people's history written on her face.

Thank you, all. The feedback & support you have so generously offered inspires me to keep going. The passionate faces of Occupy Toronto are irresistible, addictive even .....and they are many .... have posted others from Saturday's march behind this lead post ....easiest way to see them, if interested, is to go to the 'occupy toronto' set.
