Indigenous Women as Matriarch
Traditionally, women are matriarchs among the Indigenous people. Indigenous women have a greater inclination to protect the environment and respect the role of everyone in keeping harmony and balance.
Governed by the Seven Sacred Teachings, grounded in the knowledge of the land and the interdependence of humans to the whole cycle of life, they make vital decisions in the daily aspects of life in the community.
As Elders, Indigenous women are crucial in safeguarding traditional knowledge and guiding the next generations to follow their Ancestors’ footsteps by proudly embracing their heritage and culture forever.
