Summary
Mohawk and Haida, Maliseet and Ojibwe these are the voices of "warrior women"--those who have been on the front lines of some of the most important struggles aboriginal people have faced in the latter part of the 20th century. During the Oka crisis of 1990, it was the Mohawk women of Kahnawake and Kanehsatake who carried that burden. The Haida made their stand in 1985 when they blockaded logging roads on Lyell Island. The Maliseet women compelled the Canadian Parliament to pass Bill C-31, an historic piece of legislation which removed sexual discrimination from the Indian Act. This same courage drives the women of Anduhyaun, a Toronto Native women's shelter and refuge for women escaping domestic violence
