MATRIARCH RESISTANCE

KEEP OUR WOMEN SAFE

WHAT IS MATRIARCH RESISTANCE

 

Matriarch Resistance is a collective and dedicated safe space for Indigenous women and femmes to gather through sisterhood relations, self-awareness, and physical movement. This program is not only about self-defense but also self-empowerment and confidence in reclaiming your own sovereignty. It is a direct response to MMIWG2S in an intention to reclaim our strength.

 

Indigenous women, femmes and 2 spirit have always been strong physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually; this program works to reassert these roles of strength that were intentionally taken away and continually challenged by the ongoing impacts of colonization.
