Online book: Honouring Indigenous Women: Heart of Nations Vol.2

by ecnationtalk on November 30, 20121046 Views

Following the success of Honouring Indigenous Women: Hearts of Nations Vol.1, published earlier this year, the Indigenous Peoples’ SolidarityMovement Ottawa (IPSMO) has now launched the second volume!

Sixty-two women and men from various nations contributed to this book.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.

We are very grateful for the authors and artists who courageously shared their stories with us, and are honoured to publish their work. A list of our contributors is provided below.

We also would like to express our gratitude to Under One Roof Properties who generously donated us the layout by Nancy Reid from NR Grafix.

The link to download the book, Honouring Indigenous Women: Hearts of Nations Vol.2 (117-page PDF format, free of charge), is: http://ipsmo.wordpress.com/2012/11/25/online-book-hiw-hon-v2/

We are now looking for funds to print it in preparation for our book launch and to offer our contributors paper copies of the book in early 2013. We plan to have this book available for individual purchases, in local libraries and community resource centers, and for use as part of school curricula.

If you would like to help us with distribution, please contact us at ipsmo@riseup.net.

To make a donation to the campaign, please make a cheque to ‘Indigenous Peoples Solidarity Movement Ottawa’ with ‘HIW-Vol.2′ in the memo line. Cheques can be mailed to: IPSMO, c/o OPIRG-Carleton, 326 Unicentre,
