Six Nations Stands Against Proposed First Nations Education Act

12/05/13 – On December 5, a community meeting was held to discuss ways of combating the proposed First Nations Education Act. The meeting took place in the Grand River Room of Six Nations Polytechnic Institute.

Chief Ava Hill pointed out the many mistakes in this legislation that would have a negative impact on Six Nations students from Grades kindergarten to Grade 12.

Unity was discussed as a tool to combat this legislation. Another proposal was developing a non-partisan committee of Six Nations residents, educators and others to talk about a possible Six Nations Education Authority. More meetings will take place to create a plan to block this legislation.
