Section 2: Getting Started - Cultural Context: The History of Aboriginal Women in Canada [Native Women's Association of Canada, NWAC]

Publisher:

"Today women are reasserting themselves. Much of the power women once held in their communities has been lost. While the residential schools are closed and the Indian Act amended, there are still many lingering effects of assimilationist policies. But there is hope. Women are regaining their roles as caretakers, leaders, and nurturers of their communities; they can find their voices once again. It is the aim of this Toolkit to empower Aboriginal women to have a voice in environmental decision-making that affect their communities now and for the next seven generations."

They rely more heavily on social assistance and are more likely to head up a single parent family than their male counterparts. Aboriginal women face socio- economic challenges unlike those faced by any other woman in the country."

"Where they will put their heads down to sleep each night, whether that place is warm, healthy and safe, whether it is where they want to be, and whether it will be available and can be paid for the next night and the next month, are not worries that the majority of Canadians have. For some segments of the population however, such worries frame and plague their waking moments, and disturb or even destroy the restorative value of sleep which others take for granted."
