Justice for Indigenous Women’s core mission is to provide a meaningful way for mainstream Canadians to partner with a broad campaign to address the intergenerational impacts of the Indian Residential School era on Indigenous girls and women. In collaboration with Project of Heart (http://projectofheart.ca), an arts-based, learner-centered, activist education project, gestures of reconciliation created by students are made into jewelry. These works of art act as “witness pieces” that speak to the importance of telling the truth about Canada’s history.
These works of art will be showcased at the 5th Triennial IAACS Conference. Drop by the table to view these pieces and learn more about Project of Heart and Justice for Indigenous Women. Click here for a sample.
