About Us

Wapna'kikewi'skwaq - Women of First Light is a non-profit group lead by Indigenous women from Wabanaki Territory.
Women of the First Light is about bringing the Wabanki people together to give a deeper understanding of the universe. Each language holds a piece and bringing them together broadens the understanding of the cosmos and our relationships with it. 
Our purpose is to heal our communities, families and society by remembering and returning to the traditional ways of our ancestors.  We work to bring back the balance and restore the role of Clan Mothers.
