Attawapiskat Chief Theresa Spence makes a brief statement on Victoria Island near Parliament Hill, Friday Jan. 11, 2013 in Ottawa. Native protesters are swirling outside the Prime Minister's Office in the shadow of the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill as Stephen Harper prepares to meet First Nations leaders. The demonstrators began their march on Victoria Island, an outcrop in the Ottawa River upstream where Spence has been camped for more than a month. Spence told the gathered protesters that aboriginal people now have an opportunity to hold the government to account for years of broken promises. (AP Photo/The Canadian Press,Adrian Wyld)
