This is a message which really rose above the others for me today.
A close second was a comment which inspired us to consider how Ceremony is an evolving and personal practice.
Of course this beautiful group of my Indigenous kin manages to challenge my perspective. 🤗

Ontario now has a province-wide peer support line for indigenous women, offering services in 14 INDIGENOUS languages! #Repost ⚡️⚡️ @niwrc ⚡️⚡️

“Today I had the pleasure of facilitating for the first day of @nestingdoulacollective doula training for Indigenous and people of colour. What a beautiful crowd of brown birth workers. A dream and a rare scene in Victoria. I talked about the importance f the full spectrum of care from menstruation to post partum support. COMMUNITY CARE IS AN ANCIENT PRACTICE. What is your legacy and what are your family/community/ancestors traditions?” ✊🏽💪🏼🙌🏾 #birthjustice #reproductivejustice #reprojustice #doulasofcolor #indigenousbirthworkers

imagineNATIVE invited Indigenous youth to participate in a series of workshops and trainings this summer to explore #indigenous sexual health, gender & sexuality, and film/media making.

Participants were provided support to assist in production of a new video work or short film. All completed works by the participating Artists will be presented on a loop as part of the Sovereign Bodies | Healthy Nations exhibit at the Bachir/Yerex Presentation Space, 401 Richmond this week until October 20. Here are some pictures from the official opening of the exhibit.
