A view from the steps from Parliament Hill during the Idle No More rally in Ottawa on Jan. 11. The rally began on Victoria Island, in which Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, who is on a hunger strike, asked that it be a rally based on peace and love.
More than 4,000 people took part in the march. Prior to marching to Parliament Hill, the crowd had gathered around the Langevin Block where a small group of First Nations leaders were meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper. They then proceeded peacefully to the Hill where several speeches were made, followed by a march back to Victoria Island.

On a calm quiet morning, Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence finds time to feed the geese that regularly walk into the camp on Victoria Island. Spence was introduced to her people’s traditional beliefs not long after she moved to Attawapiskat. She was told before her hunger strike that birds would be appear during her fast. Four geese – which she said represents the four directions – appeared not long after and stay along the river that separates the island and Ottawa mainland.
