Idle No More – A Little Education

Last week I was browsing Facebook when I came across a post by a “friend” of mine.  It was in response to the Idle No More movement and said “Here’s an idea.  Burn the treaties and get a job…”  I was immediately disgusted and perplexed by this.  His statement had absolutely no relevance to the goals of the Idle No More mission.  It was obvious this was someone who is not only racist but really has no understanding of what Idle No More is about.

I’m assuming there are many people out there who don’t really know what this movement is about.  We hear things on the radio or see blurbs on TV but we can’t always keep up with every call to action, every protest and cause that is going on.

So, if you’ve heard about Idle No More but haven’t really had a chance to find out what it’s all about here is a little background for you.

Mission

Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water. Colonization continues through attacks to Indigenous rights and damage to the land and water. We must repair these violations, live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship, work towards justice in action, and protect Mother Earth…

Plan of Action

Support and encourage grassroots to create their own forums to learn more about Indigenous rights and our responsibilities to our Nationhood via teach-ins, rallies and social media.

Build relationships and create understanding with allies across Canada…

Fill Your Toy Box With Little Tikes #Giveaway (CAN 11/20)

Fill Your Toy Box With Little Tikes #Giveaway (CAN 11/20)

Over the past little while I have had the opportunity to review and tell you about some really cool toys from Little Tikes.

First there was the delightful little Catch Me Crabbie

Little Tikes Catch Me Crabbie

Catch Me Crabbie, or “Mr. Crabbie” as my daughter has renamed him, is a delightful little creature for little ones age 6 months and over. One easy touch of the button on his head starts the crab on a musical game of tag. The little crustacean has motion sensor technology so when he comes close to baby (or other objects) he changes direction, moving from side to side, all the while clapping his cute little claws and playing cheerful music. See the little guy do his stuff here.

Then the cute and crazy Tumble Train

The Tumble Train is different from every other train set you’ve ever seen. It’s races up and down the track, tumbling the track with it as it goes (think of a hamster in a wheel).  You can also take the train off the track and use it by itself. Make sure you watch the video on this post to see it in action!

And finally the Lil’ Ocean Explorers™ 3-in-1 Adventure Course

Catch me Crabbie is for the 6 month and up crowd.
