  • Pima’tisowin e’ mimtotaman is an Indigenous kinship-led initiative to honour the spirits of our MMIWGT2S+ loved ones. Our model is a “Families First” inclusive kinship approach to build art-based healing gatherings on the land, in ceremony, in three regions – Ontario, Quebec, and Western – with Indigenous families and communities at the epicenter of the ongoing crisis of MMIWGT2S+.
  • The ReClaim project connects women, girls and Two-Spirit people to the land, to the sacred teachings and to one another. The mission of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls – finding the truth, honouring the truth, and giving life to the truth — is realized within this national project, which aims to re-assert presence and power on the land itself as a way of reclaiming the sacred feminine, promoting safety and wellness, and transforming the narrative around Indigenous women, girls, and Two-Spirit people. It creates opportunities for families, women and youth to come together to reconnect to the matrilineal knowledge and teachings of sacred Indigenous sites across Turtle Island.
  • Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) is an aggregate of Indigenous women’s organizations across Canada, advocating for Indigenous women, girls, and gender diverse people.
  • Toronto Indigenous Harm Reduction (TIHR) emerged as a response to the pandemic of ongoing colonization and lack of services for the urban Indigenous population. Over the past year, we have provided basic needs, access to critical health support & covid 19 testing, harm reduction supplies, sexual, reproductive health and prenatal support, traditional medicines, traditional food, expressive arts, and ceremony to some of our most vulnerable people, many of whom are survivors of residential schools, the 60’s scoop and other devastating impacts of colonization.
