THANK YOU FROM YOUR TRIBALURE TEAM
Thank you for being here. We know that if you are reading this, we are connected and that you, too, share in an important issue that is near and dear to both our hearts—Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG). We have both lost aunties to this tragedy. Others have lost daughters, sisters, aunties, grandmas, cousins and friends. From that grief and loss, we have found strength—strength in ourselves and in our community—and Tribalure was born.
