Zine: Our Stories, Our Strengths, Our Truths

 

Through our work at the Native Youth Sexual Health Network across North America and during this process we have come to understand that our expressions of ideas and emotions are so much more complex and beautiful than even English allows us to show. Films, photos, spoken word, poetry, painting and storytelling - all are here and create a connected picture of Indigenous women’s leadership on this land. They speak about traditional roles before colonization began, how it continues and the creative ways we are finding to understand and implement those roles now - something we feel is absolutely central to addressing the challenges we face as Indigenous peoples.
