Native American flash mob hits the Tacoma Mall today

A Native American flash mob popped up at 2 p.m. today inside the Food Court at the Tacoma Mall. The peaceful demonstration was in support of Canada's Idle No More movement - a protest of Prime Minister Stephen Harper's legislation and the overall treatment and conditions of aboriginals in Canada.

The "spontaneous" flash mob round dance - which consisted of beating drums, chanting and singing traditional songs - drew around 20 police officers and frightened nearby shop owners who immediately closed.
