Statement of Solidarity For Attawapiskat

Harmony Movement is located on the traditional treaty territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit but also acknowledging the traditional territories of many peoples including Haudenosaunee, Métis, and the Wendat. We recognize that individuals who are not indigenous to this land are in fact visitors who have settled on traditional territories of the Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island. As non-Indigenous peoples, it is our responsibility to uphold treaty and other land agreements between settlers (non-Indigenous peoples) and Indigenous communities.

On April 11th, 2016 Attawapiskat First Nation declared a state of emergency due to the overwhelming number of suicides and suicide attempts that have plagued their community. Our government and fellow Canadians have ignored these tragedies for far too long, leaving many Indigenous youth feeling hopeless and forgotten.

As Social Changemakers, we are committed to educating and raising awareness about issues that many Indigenous communities in Canada face, such as inadequate access to housing and clean drinking water, systemic discrimination, environmental racism and vicarious trauma.

Harmony Movement stands in solidarity with Attawapiskat and other Indigenous nations across the country. We join in on the call that demands our government listen to the concerns of members within these communities and seek out permanent solutions.
