In celebration of International Women's Day, today's episode is dedicated to our mothers and honouring their advocacy and leadership. Hosts Kieran Davis and Winter Dawn Lipscombe highlight the significance of recognizing and uplifting Indigenous women in leadership roles, that historically, Indigenous women held significant roles in their communities as caregivers, mediators, and decision-makers. However, colonization and the residential school system have suppressed women from their traditional roles.
It is essential to prioritize and uplift Indigenous women in leadership roles as they bring a unique perspective and approach to leadership that is community-oriented and focused on caring for the people and the land. Through recognition and support of Indigenous women's leadership, we can work toward building more resilient and thriving communities.
