Our Story

Since our launch in 2023, Indigenous Women Rise Society has provided programming, events and training to Indigenous Women across Turtle Island both in-person and virtually. We create space for First Nations, Inuit and Métis women to be empowered, uplifted and inspired.  

 

Indigenous Women Rise drum group has been together since 2018 and when COVID-19 hit we quickly moved online. Women from across Turtle Island joined us from the comfort of their homes. Women from the drum group have stated the group provides good medicine for each other and some women have found their voice through the power of the drum. The women from the drum group feel a strong sense of belonging, connection and unity. We hold monthly in person practice & potluck gatherings. We also have been invited to do performances and opening of events.

We currently provide supports for families of the MMIWG2S and prevention and healing supports with our Arming Sisters and Healing Supports Program. We are also developing some sports programming for Indigenous women and youth. While there is always more that can be done, there is no doubt that we are providing space for Indigenous women continue gathering and healing together.
