"Indigenous women and girls are strong, powerful, intelligent, beloved human beings. We are sacred. And we deserve to be treated with the utmost honour and respect. My sisters embody all of this and so much more – and we will continue to redefine ourselves because we are dynamic and complex, creators and reflections of creation."
"More than 800 Indigenous women have been murdered or disappeared and the Canadian government is ‘saying that everything is fine’."
"This is the beginning of our radical thinking and action."
"We must build criticality around gender violence in the architecture of our movements. We need to build communities that are committed to ending gender violence and we need real world skills, strategies and plans in place, right now, to deal with the inevitable increase in gender violence that is going to be the colonial response to direct action and on going activism. We need trained people on the ground at our protests and our on the land reclamation camps. We need our own alternative systems in place to deal with sexual assault at the community level, systems that are based on our traditions and do not involve state police and the state legal system."
