An Indigenous-led social media campaign is blowing up in response to #Canada150 and Canada Day celebrations.
The hashtag #Resistance150 was started by four diverse Indigenous community leaders: Anishinaabe storyteller Isaac Murdoch, Michif artist Christi Belcourt, Métis author Maria Campbell, and vocal Cree activist Tanya Kappo.
Now, it has blossomed into a roaring social media campaign with thousands of Indigenous and non-Indigenous followers.
For one thing; the federal government is spending half a billion dollars on #Canada150. Yet, some First Nations communities have been under a boil water advisory for so long, that "an entire generation" of kids have grown up without ever running a tap of clean water in their own home.
