I Am A Proud Haudenosaunee Poster Campaign

In November 2012, Ganohkwasra Family Assault Support Services held a contest to select 5 individuals and 1 family to be featured on our new I Am A Proud Haudenosaunee Poster Campaign. The Poster campaign is inclusive of family violence prevention initiatives that Ganohkwasra has undertaken in the last few years. This Poster Campaign is to uniquely raise awareness and speak out against violence against women, men, youth, children and elderly. As Haudenosaunee (People of the Longhouse) people, we were given teachings of peace, respect, caring and compassion. These teachings are reflected within the Ganohkwasra philosophy ,” we are all born with Ganikwi:yo (a good mind) and interconnectedness, therefore everything we need to end family violence is within us.

Community members were invited to submit a short sentence to complete the sentence, “I Am A Proud Haudenosaunee, therefore I …. A selection committee reviewed the submissions and chose the poster models based on their statement as well as others were recruited to participate.

After much planning and successful photo shoots, the Campaign was launched the first week in April. The selected individuals and family were invited to a dinner where they were presented with a plaqued copy of their poster. All 6 of the posters turned out excellent and we are honoured to have these individuals and family as part of our I Am A Proud Haudenosaunee Poster campaign. The following individuals were chosen:

Child – Augustus Jamieson
Youth – Kendrew Jacobs
Adult Female – Amy General
Adult Male – Jim Doxtador
Older Person – Germaine Myke
Family – Brittany Thomas & Cody Johnson & Daughters, Kyleeya & Kendyl
