The 2010 Winter Olympics will take place on unceded indigenous land in two years. The Olympic spectacle attacks indigenous peoples, the poor and the Earth. In the spirit of resistance to colonialism, two indigenous youth activists are touring throughout the Great Lakes and the East Coast in January and February 2008.

The Native Youth Movement (NYM) works to revive traditional knowledge and inspire Native youth to defend their Peoples and Territories. Both Kanahus and Dustin are actively organizing against the 2010 Olympics.
