UIHI Success Story: Supporting the Sacred – Womxn of Resilience

Success Stories, TEC News
In September 2020, UIHI released a grant opportunity, Supporting the Sacred: Womxn of Resilience, for Native femme-identifying survivors of sexual violence who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. The individuals who applied shared their stories with us and allowed us to be a small part of their healing journey. For that, we are beyond grateful.

To show our appreciation and love for this community, we created care packages full of medicines, jewelry, and other self-care items purchased from Indigenous-owned and operated businesses including Sister Sky, Eighth Generation, Haípažaža pȟežúta, Red Lake Nation Foods, and NativeWorks Jewelry Store.


Each care package was a display of the respect and care we have for our relatives who have survived sexual violence and who chose to trust us with their story so we can better serve our community.
