Canadian Saulteaux actor Adam Beach took to time to talk about the Idle No More movement while promoting the second season of Arctic Air that airs on APTN.
“I feel Idle No More is a change of consciousness within all of us, especially for Native people, to stand up for ourselves, not play the victim,” said Beach.
He’s reached out to Chief Theresa Spence multiple times and visited her over the holidays. He said he sympathizes with Spence who has been on liquid only hunger strike since Dec. 11.
“My friends are taking care of her and they’re letting me know how she’s feeling,” he said. “I visited her at Christmas to bring that Christmas cheer and peace and harmony in the world we live in. I wanted her to know that someone, like myself, is watching and cares and I want to help in any way.”
Season two of Arctic Airs begins later this week.
Beach said fans of the show won’t be disappointed.
