Honouring Her Sacred Spirit Canvas Original
This beautiful acrylic painting was created to honor murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls. The MMIWG movement is one that I hold near and dear to my heart.
For far too long, Indigenous women and girls have been publicly degraded & shamed, the general views have been moulded by hurtful colonial stereotypes. People forget that every Indigenous woman or girl, no matter how she died or what she had lived through has an internal strength, beauty and sacred worth. Indigenous women have traditionally been hounored as life-givers and caregivers. Therefore, we say “our women and girls are sacred”.
We need to change the nation-wide conversation about Indigenous women and girls. To build a strong foundation for healing, justice, and reconciliation, governments and institutions must change. So must our society’s attitudes and understanding of the issue.
