Keep the Lodge keepers in the ceremony

This petition had 5 supporters

This petition was created by the Executive Committee of the SAITSA Indigenous Students Alliance, and is in support of having the Lodge keepers from Chinook Lodge Aboriginal Resource Centre attend the 2017 Indigenous Year-end Celebration. The powers that be at SAIT have unilaterally decided that the support staff from the Lodge, who were so important the success of so many of us, are not to attend the convocation of the 2017 class. Their efforts have extended well beyond that of other academic coordinators on campus, acting as surrogate family for many of our students. To not allow the Keepers of our Lodge to attend the ceremony celebrating the fruits of their and our efforts is a slight against their hard work and in direct contrast to our desire to celebrate this achievement in a meaningful and culturally appropriate manner. Show SAIT that paying lip service to Indigenous voices is no longer an acceptable policy and that we demand our Lodge Keepers stand beside us as we celebrate our accomplishments.
