** This is part of our multi-city launch in late summer and early fall 2013 in cities including Vancouver, Edmonton, Regina, Toronto, Peterborough, Ottawa and Manistee (Michigan, US).
The Sound of My Heart is a grassroots collective initiated by a small group of women in May 2013. Our goal is to carry out the Honouring Indigenous Women campaign through the arts of storytelling, poetry, painting, drawing, photography and sound. Our work focuses on continuing our solidarity by raising awareness about Indigenous women. We are committed to help build solidarity between Native and non-Native communities.
