The Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) is hosting Poetry Nights across Ontario to raise awareness of Violence Against Women in support of the United Nations International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women #orangetheworld campaign. This day provides an opportunity to create a space where Indigenous women can gather and celebrate strength and resiliency.

Art as Healing Trauma is a strong foundation of the work ONWA does, addressing violence from perspectives rooted in cultural teachings. ONWA is committed to supporting communities and hope to those on their healing journey, and invites all poets, storytellers, writers and spoken word artists to help raise awareness of the violence against Indigenous Women and Girls by participating in events across Ontario. Province wide submissions are considered for ONWA’s annual publication Strong Hands Stop Violence, which highlights poetry written by Indigenous women.
