Six Nations kids want supplies not lies!

On Monday October 1st, a group of Six Nations parents and their allies rallied at the Brantford offices of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada to protest the fact that children at Six Nations schools have still not received their school supplies, despite having ordered them in May.

Six Nations parents and teachers have been paying out of their own pockets costs which should be covered by the government. Whether this is a result of government cutbacks or bureaucratic incompetence, it is an injustice that Six Nations children should not have to suffer.

At Monday’s protest, Six Nations parents told Bob Maguire, the AANDC-AADNC Director of Funding Services that if the schools supplies for their children were not delivered by Thursday, October 4th, another protest would be held outside the AANDC-AADNC offices (58, Dalhousie St., Brantford, Six Nations Territory) at 8am on Friday October 5th.

Education is a right! Honour the Treaties! Supplies not Lies!
