We have spoken with the Haudenosaunee Wildlife and Habitat Authority (HWHA) about this year’s harvest at Short Hills and we have been directed to follow last year’s hunt protocols which are to not have an in-person presence at the park. Therefore, no educational workshops will be offered onsite.
It has been confirmed with the Niagara Regional Police Services (NRPS) that there will no longer be an anti-hunt barricade and that Haudenosaunee harvesters will have direct access in and out of the park. There will be a Human Rights organization on-site to document. Supporters are asked to respect and follow the wishes of the HWHA and to show their support online. This is an outcome from our past work and we thank all of those who have joined with us in standing up for Indigenous Rights.
This year’s Indigenous Rights Conference has been postponed due to Covid-19. We look forward to hosting the conference again in 2021. Last year’s conference was a resounding success, joining voices from across Turtle Island and the Niagara Region. We are looking forward to seeing you then!.
