“Organizers from Idle No More held a flash mob round dance early Saturday evening at the Mall of America to raise awareness of their movement that calls on all people “to join in a revolution which honors and fulfills Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water.”

“More than a thousand Native American people filled the eastern rotunda at the Mall of America, dancing in a circle as the sound of drums filled the area,” Sheila Regan reported for the Twin Cities Daily Planet.

The flash mob round dance was also organized in support of Attawapiskat First Nation Chief Theresa Spence who’s currently on a hunger strike.

Her hunger strike stretched into Day 23 on Wednesday, with Spence vowing to survive on nothing more than fish broth and herbal tea until the Canadian Prime Minister meets with her and other Indigenous leaders.”
