The Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA) is proud to share the official launch of the second edition of She Is Wise magazine
This edition focuses on art as a tool for healing. At the time we chose this theme, ONWA could not have conceived the global pandemic that would see a worldwide need for healing.
Healing has always been a central focus for ONWA. Indigenous women are the centre of our community, and when they are healthy and well, so too are their families and our extended community. Indigenous women know what their needs and capacity are for healing. We’ve been doing it for generations, and we understand that healing is a spectrum.
In this edition we:
Explore the Healing Power of Art with Métis artist Christi Belcourt
Delve into The Art of Remembering to learn how ONWA embraces art to heal the wounds and sorrow caused by Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG)
Discover the Tree of Hope, A Tree, A Hope and a Push for Answers initiative a Thunder Bay Police constable brought to life in partnership with ONWA
Listen with A Sympathetic Ear, as Bryanne Machimity share the story of the aftermath of losing her mother to violence and helping others cope
We hope that the visual beauty and powerful words within will bring both enlightenment and joy at a time when we all can use these gifts in abundance.
