Meaningful Stories That Spark Progressive Dialogue
Agnes Woodward (Cree) is from Kawacatoose First Nation in Saskatchewan, Canada. Agnes is the secretary and blog contributor to the Arikara Community Action Group, a nonprofit that was founded in 2015 with a focus on community building through youth engagement, empowerment, and leadership. Agnes has an Etsy shop and Facebook page called ReeCreeations where she and her husband create custom ribbon skirts and artwork. Being raised by parents who were both activists, Agnes has always been extremely passionate about human rights issues with a focus on Indigenous rights. She plans to pursue a degree in Native American studies focused on Indigenous community building, while she continues to use her voice to raise awareness on issues that are prevalent in Indigenous communities such as the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirited. Through writing and sharing her personal stories and experiences, she hopes to contribute to the healing of Indigenous communities while helping to shine a light on the injustices they face.
