    The Week That Was: The Big Stories in Indian Country, December 30, 2012

    THE MOVEMENT GOES ON: Idle No More protests continued in Canada, where Natives have been holding demonstrations and round dances in public to support Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence, who has been on a hunger strike for over two weeks. Spence has resolved not to eat solid food until she gets a meeting with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Idle No More has spread to the United States and elsewhere, drawing support from indigenous populations and human rights groups. On Christmas Eve, 76-year-old Clyde Bellecourt, a co-founder of the American Indian Movement, was arrested at an Idle No More rally in Minneapolis.
