  • McMaster Indigenous Studies speaks against criminalization of using Onongwatri:yo:2

    This is a statement of support for Makayla Sault, her family, and the community that surrounds
    her. It is of great concern to the Indigenous Studies Program at McMaster University to learn
    that Makayla’s decision to self-determine the course of her treatment is being not only
    dismissed because of her age, but also devalued by health care professionals because it is rooted
    in Indigenous Knowledge. We are deeply troubled to hear that Makayla’s parents have faced
    intimidation and threats of intervention for their choice to respect the agency of their child, and
    that these choices have become criminalized. Makayla’s choice to seek out traditional medicine
    is protected through the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

    has been dismissed, devalued, and characterized as irrelevant and unimportant.
