The UWaterloo 16 Days planning committee
acknowledge that we are on the traditional territory
of the Attawandaron (Neutral), Anishinaabeg, and
Haudenosaunee peoples. The University of
Waterloo is situated on the Haldimand Tract,
the land promised to the Six Nations that includes
ten kilometers on each side of the Grand River.
The Red Scarf Project is an awareness-raising and stigma-busting initiative in support of people living with HIV in Waterloo Region which lies on unceded territory of the Neutral, Anishnawbe and Haudenosaunee peoples of the Haldimand Tract.
We hope to collect red scarves created by service users, volunteers, and community groups, along with their personalized messages expressing what their relationship with HIV and what ACCKWA means to them. These scarves and messages will then be displayed around the region throughout November and December, demonstrating to the community the many different ways HIV can impact someone’s life, regardless of their status.
Red scarves and messages will be displayed at the Waterloo Indigenous Student Centre from December 2nd-6th.
