“First Nations women have always been the backbone of our communities and played critical roles in the health of our communities and culture. Over the past decade more women have been steadily stepping into positions of power. Women leaders in our communities have powerful voices that remind us that we have an obligation to take care of each other, our communities and our environment.” – Chief Marilyn Slett
