2. think we do need some backstory on this

like a link to a story on DU on why Chief Spence is on a 2 week hunger strike so far... sure I need a diet I can't imagine 2 weeks w/o food. I'd assume if it's 2 weeks she's drinking water. Rarely hear about the Mohawks except when one is wearing one. So I had to do a double take. Don't know my history here on where the Mohawk hair style came from. Whether it's as fictional as scalping or not. (Scalping being a french thing not Indian.)

3. Some background info in LBN

This LBN thread has links to several articles, including an official statement from the David Suzuki Foundation:
"As protests swell, Attawapiskat chief stands firm on hunger strike"
