Photos: American Indian groups protest at 16th Street Mall, bombard Canadian Consulate

It was quite cold in Denver today where hundreds of people gathered just outside the Canadian consulate to stand in solidarity with indigenous groups in that country who are fighting with the government there over a wide range of issues. But organizers of the local protest said supporters of First Nations should have no problem enduring the cold, knowing that in Canada, a chief is suffering through a hunger strike to get officials' attention.
