The Winter We Danced: Voices from the Past, the Future, and the Idle No More Movement is edited by the Kino-nda-niimi Collective and has gathered an amazing group of writers and activists who address the Aboriginal movement known as Idle No More. This current publication includes a collection writing, poetry, lyrics, art, interviews and images from the many diverse voices that make up the past, present, and future of the Idle No More movement. Calling for pathways into healthy, just, equitable and sustainable communities while drawing on a wide-ranging body of narratives, journalism, editorials and creative pieces, this collection consolidates some of the most powerful, creative and insightful moments from the winter we danced and gestures towards next steps in an on-going movement for justice and Indigenous self-determination. The editors organize the collection into segments beginning with First Beats including pieces by Pamela Palmater, Russell Diabo, Sylvia McAdam, Hayden King, and Waneek Horn-Miller among others. The remaining sections are Singers and Dancers; Friendships; Image Warriors, New Directions, and Timeline. This far-ranging anthology can appeal to scholars, teens, Indigenous and allies, and the general reader interested in understanding this timely phenomenon known as Idle No More.
