Coloring Book

COLORING BOOK_digital1.jpg

From the place of teachings, from where the sun rises, from the people of the dawn Wapna’kikewi’skwaq – Women of the First Light grew out of Righting Relations/Apajiwla’matulinej, a national network of adult educators and grassroots organizers working for social change. 

 

Our purpose is to heal and empower Indigenous communities. As women are the strength of our communities, we start thereby working to change the story of Indigenous women from one of being a victim to one of resilience, power, hope and love.

 

From our hearts, we say Wela’liek to the family members who have shared this journey with us. Wela’liek to our supporters
