The Canadian shows will raise money for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation Legal Defense Fund to aid Canada's efforts to preserve their natural resources, and is being called the "Honour the Treaties" concerts. A statement at Massey Hall's website says:
The ACFN refer to themselves as K'ai Taile Dene, meaning "people of the land of the willow." A Legal Defense fund was set up to support the ACFN’s legal challenges against oil companies and government that are obstructing their traditional lands and rights. As people of the land the ACFN have used and occupied their traditional lands in the Athabasca region for thousands of years, hunting, trapping, fishing and gathering to sustain themselves and continue spiritual cultural rights passed down through generations. The ACFN’s legal challenges will ensure the protection of their traditional lands, eco-systems and unique rights guaranteed by Treaty 8, the last and largest of the nineteenth century land agreements made between First Nations and the Government of Canada, are upheld for the benefit of future generations.
Rolling Stone has also speculated that more European tour dates will be announced for Crazy Horse, because their 2013 tour was cut short when guitarist Poncho Sampedro broke his hand. Stay tuned for more announcements here on Zumic.
Last week Neil Young released Live at the Cellar Door, which you can hear for free right here on Zumic.
