An Ottawa-based organization is making sure to tell as many stories of Indigenous women as possible after it released a second volume of a book collection on the topic.
The release of the new collection, Honouring Indigenous Women: Hearts of Nations Vol.2, was produced by the Indigenous Peoples’ Solidarity Movement Ottawa (IPSMO) as a part of its Honouring Indigenous Women Campaign.
The collections can be viewed for free on the organization’s website (ipsmo.org) and features the unique stories from 62 women and men from different nations.
Along with the valuable knowledge the women shared with their stories, the newest volume is also meant to give Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people a chance to express themselves through writing and art.
“We are very grateful for the authors and artists who courageously shared their stories with us, and are honoured to publish their work,” said Pei-Ju, one of the campaign’s organizers.
The launch of the collection coincided with the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women on November 25.
The book is available for purchase and the organization is still looking for more distributors and donations.
