Moon Voices: Resistance, Connection, Reclamation

Wednesday, December 14, 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm

The women of Ka Ni Kanichihk’s Moon Voices program invite you to tune into CKUW 95.9 FM for a special broadcast of “Moon Voices on the Air - Stories of Resistance, Connection and Reclamation”. Podcasts of the show will also be available on CKUW's website!

Host Cheryl McKenzie of APTN will facilitate.  We'll discuss what it means for Indigenous women to reclaim power, challenge systemic barriers and reconnect to our culture. 

Our stories will touch your heart, spark your interest, and make you think about what you know about Indigenous women.
