Saskatchewan Indigenous Women’s Leadership Forum
We are matriarchs. We are resilient. We bring healing home to our communities. Together, we lift up our people.
The Saskatchewan Indigenous Women’s Leadership Forum is an annual forum that continues to grow in attendance and importance. The Forum is dedicated to building local women’s capacity, increasing stakeholder support, and strengthening networking opportunities for First Nation Women in Saskatchewan.
Forum topics range from traditional teachings, identity, MMIWG, the importance of family wellness, traditional child birthing, land and food sovereignty, to challenges in leadership, and navigating the contemporary workplace.
