The organizers of Idle No More are trying to turn away from divisive actions like road, rail and bridge blockades.

Instead, they want to show Canadians a lighter side.

In Edmonton, they were handing out tea and celebrating through Dene song and dance.

APTN National News reporter Keith Laboucan was there.

    In Sault Ste Marie, Ontario – the natives haven’t mentioned Bill C-45 once, it is like they don’t even know what they are protesting.

    They are blockading traffic and because of that, a lot of hatred and anger is being generated within the community. It is a very bad situation here and our local news website had to shut off the comments on a related story due to an alarming number of racist and hate-speech comments.
