Announcing the release of Honouring Indigenous Women: Heart of Nations Vol.2
As of Sunday, Nov. 25, this book will be available online at www.ipsmo.org as a 117-pg PDF document for viewing/downloading/printing.
This release date coincides with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.
Earlier this year, following the success of Honouring Indigenous Women: Hearts of Nations Vol.1, the Indigenous Peoples’ Solidarity Movement Ottawa (IPSMO) launched its Honouring Indigenous Women Campaign and put out a call for submissions for volume 2. Through this initiative, the campaign organizers aim to re-centre our understanding of our society based on the experiences and perspectives of Indigenous women. They also aim to create a venue where Indigenous peoples can express themselves.
62 women and men from various nations contributed to this second volume. Indigenous women shared their lived experiences with regards to their relationships with the land, their birth mothers, families, communities and themselves. Their Indigenous and non-Indigenous allies shared their thoughts on responsibilities to (re)build relationships with Indigenous women.
On Nov. 25, please visit www.ipsmo.org to receive this book.
Also note that we will be accepting donations to put towards the printing costs. We hope to have copies made in early 2013 to provide to all contributors, as well as to make available for individual purchases, in local libraries, community resource centers, and as part of school curriculum.
Donations can be made by cheque or via PayPal. Cheques can be made payable to 'Indigenous Peoples Solidarity Movement Ottawa' with 'HIW-Vol.2' in the memo line, and mailed to: IPSMO, c/o OPIRG-Carleton, 326 Unicentre, Carleton University, 1125 Colonel By Drive, Ottawa, ON, K1S 5B6.

This particular piece represents the parts of a woman: her love, her embrace, her laughter, and her tears

Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
