Correction: Six NON-NATIVE women arrested at sit-in at Chuck Strahl’s office

On behalf of the women who took part in the Sit-In at Chuck Strahl’s office today, committing to stay until funds are renewed to the Aboriginal Healing Foundation, I would like to correct most of the media coverage I have seen so far that has called us “Native Protesters.”

We are, in fact, non-Native solidarity protesters who believe that every resident of Canada has a stake in seeing strong, community-based organizations that promote the health and recovery of Aboriginal communities that have survived the Residential School System.
