“Woman is the centre of the wheel of life. She is the heartbeat of the people. She is not just in the home, but she is the community, she is the Nation.” (Art Solomon).  

We are honoured to release the Learning Network Newsletter Indigenous Women, Intimate Partner Violence, and Housing written by the Ontario Native Women’s Association (ONWA). Addressing the violence and homelessness experienced by Indigenous women requires that we confront the deep-seated colonialism, racism, sexism, and poverty that continues today.  Learn how ONWA focuses on the strengths of Indigenous women and girls, and their communities, to promote recovery and overall well-being.
