Thunder Bay, ON – The Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA), would like to congratulate Dr. Kathleen E. Absolon, MSW, PhD. (Minogiizhigokwe) on her newest book 'Kaandossiwin: How We Come to Know Indigenous re-Search Methodologies' 2nd Edition. In honour and recognition of Indigenous History Month, ONWA is delighted to welcome Dr. Kathy Absolon to a virtual book launch to speak about her latest work.
At the Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA), we celebrate and honour the safety and healing of Indigenous women and girls as they take up their leadership roles in the family, community and internationally for generations to come. ONWA prioritizes making space and amplifying the voices of Indigenous women who are making positive changes in families, communities, systems, and institutions.
Every Indigenous woman is a leader, and we need to reclaim that inherent role.
Dr. Kathy Absolon exemplifies Indigenous women’s leadership and what it can accomplish, and her work in Indigenous research is inspiring. Dr. Absolon is making impactful change by carving out a space at academic institutions for Indigenous thinkers. She honours Indigenous spirits, stories, traditions, and knowledge, and is paving the way for the next generation of Indigenous researchers. Dr. Absolon encourages us to adopt Indigenous methodologies and validates Indigenous knowledge systems.
Please join us at 1:00 pm EST on Wednesday, June 8th to hear Dr. Kathy Absolon speak to her meaningful work and share with us the journey that has brought her to this point. There will be 25 signed copies of the book available to win as door prizes for those who are in attendance.
