Resilience is a creative response to Call to Action #79 of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report: integration of "Indigenous history, heritage values, and memory practices into Canada’s national heritage and history."
"The artists in Resilience resist and oppose ongoing injustices against Indigenous individuals and nation... these Indigenous women stand as Defenders of their cultural sovereignty and Protectors of the land."

Resilience takes place June 1, 2018 to August 1, 2018 on 81 billboards from coast to coast.
To keep the resilient spirit alive, Manitoba Music & Indigenous Music Development Program teamed up with MAWA Mentoring Artists for Women's Art for a playlist of First Nation, Metis, and Inuit women and two spirit artists from across Canada on Spotify. Check out some great tunes!
