For the indigenous peoples of Canada, indeed the world, the day of reckoning has arrived. No longer submissive to the domination of modern states that stole their wealth in the past, indigenous nations are looking to a future where they are treated with respect. As reported from Winnipeg, Manitoba, the Cree are not taking mistreatment by the courts lying down. If necessary, they will shut down the mining industry to get their message across.

That takes time, expertise and resources - and we're up against a constant tide of misinformation and distorted coverage.
