Do you know an Indigenous woman or 2SLGBTQQIA+ person you would like to lift up and celebrate? Does your Mom, Kokum, sister, auntie or friend need a shout-out because of how amazing they are?
One of LFMO’s ongoing projects is the She is Indigenous campaign, an online social media awareness campaign that celebrates the strength, diversity, and contributions of Métis, First Nations, and Inuit women across the country.
Each week, we share the stories of three incredible Indigenous women and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people – community members, teachers, mothers, grandmothers, doctors, artists, authors, postal service employees, nurses and more – and we would love to share your story!
Launched in June 2019, LFMO developed the campaign together with national and provincial Indigenous organizations, with support from the Government of Ontario and in creative partnership with Spruce Creative. She is Indigenous has successfully showcased over 350 Indigenous women and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people, their beautiful stories, and the value, joy, strength and light they bring to everyone around them.
