Idle No More is a movement led by Indigenous people of Canada in pursuit of environmental justice. It was founded in December 2012 by four women: three First Nations women and one non-Native ally. It is a grassroots movement among the Aboriginal peoples in Canada comprising the First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples and their non-Aboriginal supporters in Canada.
