IKWE: Honouring Women Colouring Book
This colouring book by Anishinaabe artist Jackie Travers features stunning images in IKWE celebrating the spiritual and ceremonial aspects of women and their important role as water protectors.
“I had the privilege of going to Standing Rock twice. The strength and power that came from the women there inspired this book. To be a woman is to be a life giver and water protector. Even if you never have children, you have that sense, and the duty to honour and protect the water is within you,” writes Traverse.
Jackie Traverse is an Anishinaabe multi-disciplined artist working in video, sculpture, mixed media and paint. She is also the founder of Indigenous Rock the Vote and Ikwe Safe Ride, a ride-sharing network that offers safe rides for Indigenous women. She lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
