Fourth-year Honours Bachelor of Creative Writing & Publishing student Suha Tariq’s poem “Your Hand in Mine” was the winner of the Debwewin Allyship Poetry Contest, which invited Sheridan and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation students to submit poems around the themes of allyship and advancing Truth and Reconciliation.

Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation post-secondary student Dakota Tabicoe finished second in the contest, while Sheridan Creative Writing & Publishing student Nicole Abiyo was awarded third place for her poem “Parallel Lines.” Sheridan proudly supported the contest, part of the Grateful Treaty Person and Acts of Allyship Campaign, in alignment with Debwewin: The Oakville Truth Project, a joint initiative of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation (MCFN) and the Oakville Community Foundation.
