Ottawa, ON, February 25, 2020 – On behalf of the Native Women’s Association of Canada, the Board, staff and management would like to offer prayers and condolences to the family of Ruth Kidder.

Ruth was, for over 40 years, a strong and tireless protector of Indigenous Women’s Rights and fearless advocate with the Alberta Aboriginal Women’s Society and NWAC.

“Ruth’s presence will be greatly missed as she was a very strong and respected voice for Indigenous Women and families from her community, Alberta and beyond,” stated NWAC President, Lorraine Whitman. Roseanne Martin, NWAC Elder added “While she may be gone, she will never be forgotten.”
