My best friend Amy Hull is an awesome young Qalipu Mi’kmaq and Inuk woman. She is an activist, a beadworker, a seamstress, a dancer. She’s on her way to getting a university degree, but the canadian government has decided to take away her Indian Status, revoking her access to her funding partway through her degree. They have decided she needs to fulfill a checklist of requirements in order to be deemed “Indigenous enough” for her to keep her status, including travelling back home to her community in Newfoundland extremely regularly, which is not feasible on her income since she attends school in Toronto. Indigenous women are some of the most marginalized folks in this country, and this is the story of one young Indigenous woman trying to get an education in a system that is doing everything in its power to hold her back. Please, if you’re able, donate or share so Amy can finish her degree. Mîkwêc.
