Âhkamêyimowak: The Strength of Women
University of Winnipeg
March 10, 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

There is a force among women which Priscilla Settee calls Âhkamêyimowak, or persistence, which provides the strength for women to carry on in the face of 
extreme adversity. 

Âhkamêyimowak, also the title of Settee’s new book, is a Cree word and embodies the strength that drives women to survive, flourish and work for change in their communities.

Join Priscilla as she shares women’s stories from her book, both powerful personal stories and those describing institutional relationships that keep Indigenous women in Canada.
