Stories of Previously Incarcerated Indigenous Mothers
Kijibashik is a SSHRC-funded project led by a team of community members, students, advocates, and academics who want to eliminate the over-representation of Indigenous women and girls in Canadian prison systems. By speaking to formerly incarcerated Indigenous mothers or mother-figures, we aim to inform new programs, policies, and services to support these women and their children and break the cycle of incarceration.
