Honouring Indigenous Women: Hearts of Nations - Vol. 2 is a collection of creative writings and visual arts by Indigenous women alongside their allies from many nations across Turtle Island. It is made possible by over 60 writers and artists reflecting and sharing their lived experiences with regards to their relationships with the land, birth mothers, families, communities, and themselves.
This is part of our multi-city launch in fall 2013 in cities including Vancouver, Edmonton, Regina, Toronto, Peterborough, Ottawa and Manistee (Michigan, US).
