The only problem is the name. Were we idle before? Because I was pretty sure we were active, just that, um, M Bison's comment to Chun Li in the Street Fighter movie comes to mind: "For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for was Tuesday."

Yeah, I posted a Facebook comment on the name "Idle No More" when the movement took off. It was like, "Really, y'all have been idle until now? I thought you were already helping your people."
