The Indigenous Solidarity Coalition is a part of the Supporters of Haudenosaunee Right to Hunt, which hosts a series of educational and cross-cultural learning opportunities over the course of the annual Haudenosaunee deer harvest at Short Hills Provincial Park. These workshops align with the work already started through the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and express our commitment to the Commission’s calls to action.
The whole schedule is available for download here.

Big thank you to all supporters and activists who attended, spoke, smiled, ate wonderful pastries, and sipped some cold cider with us! Together we grow stronger; together we can build a university that works for all of us!
Unit 1 is in collective bargaining with the university. After 4 rounds of negotiations we are not far into the process and the employer demands severe concessions to job security of our members. A strong union needs their members’ support! More info to follow shortly.
