Description

In Canada, women, and in particular Indigenous women, comprise the fastest growing population of sentenced offenders. Drs. Pulis and Hollenberg will discuss their collaboration with provincially- and federally sentenced women participating in the sacred grounds at Ellen House. In the spirit of Indigenous social justice and feminist research, an oral history of women’s lived experiences is being gathered to better understand the lives and lived experiences of these women in a way that’s collaborative, authentic and works towards common goals, including reconciliation, rehabilitation and reciprocity. This narrative begins to communicate a counternarrative of resilience and regeneration, in the face of oftentimes overwhelming systemic discrimination these women face.
