About We Are Resilient

Our purpose is clear. As Indigenous women, we to tell the stories of our Missing and Murdered Indigenous sisters. This isn’t a comedy, we’re not here to entertain. We are here to say their names. We are here because their stories matter. We are resilient.

We appreciate your patience as we update this page.
