Educational workshops begin in conjunction with Short Hills Deer Hunt

As a controversial deer hunt at Short Hills Provincial Park gets underway, a series of educational workshops are being held by the Supporters of Haudenosaunee Right to Hunt.

Organizers say the workshops will cover topics such as missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls and how supporting Six Nations hunting rights is consistent with the animal liberation movement.

The workshops are being held at the Pelham Road entrance to the provincial park where the annual deer hunt takes place.

It is also where protesters gather to protest the hunt every year.

The hunt is protected under Canadian law.


The workshops this weekend include:

- Missing Stories: missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada (Saturday, November 3 at 2 p.m.)

- The Eagle and the Condor: interactive combined North and South American Indigenous ceremonies (Saturday, November 3 at 4 p.m.)

- From Turtle Island to Palestine: comparing colonialism in North America and Palestine (Sunday, November 4 at 12 p.m.)

- The Two Row Wampum: ethical obligations of settlers as guests in Indigenous Territory (Sunday, November 4 at 2 p.m.)

- Animal Liberation and Indigenous Justice: how supporting the Six Nations hunting rights is consistent with the animal liberation movement (Sunday, November 4 at 4 p.m.)
