GOVERNING DOCUMENTS

CONSTITUTION

ELECTORAL BY-LAWS

 

ASUS acknowledges that McGill is on the traditional territory of the Indigenous People, Kanien'keha:ka (Ga-niyen-ge-haa-ga). The Kanien'keha:ka are the keepers of the Eastern Door of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy. This island known as Montreal is known as Tio’tia:ke (Gio-Jaw-Gé) in the language of the Kanien’kehá:ka, and has historically served as a meeting place for other Indigenous nations.

It is not enough to just acknowledge the keepers of this land and McGill’s status as a settler-colonial institution. Silence and inaction will only contribute to erasing the history, the culture, and the realities of Indigenous people. As such, it is important that individuals educate themselves on Indigenous matters and that they apply that knowledge to support Indigenous communities. ASUS should actively resist (neo)-colonialism in the many forms it takes, and in the diversity of forms that resistance can take.
