As part of the Grateful Treaty Person and Acts of Allyship Campaign, Gimaa shares his poem “Nii jii”, which means “friend” in Anishinaabemowin and invites post-secondary students to share, in their own words what Allyship or friendship feels and looks like to them. This can be done through poetry, spoken word, rap or song. The contest is open to all Oakville, Sheridan College and MCFN post-secondary school students, with multiple winners to be announced.
Submissions are open from November 7th, 2023 to February 5th, 2024. Winners will be announced by February 28th.
