Indigenous Women's Arts Conference
In taking inspiration from the Haudenosaunee Seventh Generation Principle, this conference serves to preserve and revitalize endangered Indigenous art forms and enrich lives through Indigenous arts and cultures.
This gathering [re]connects and empowers Indigenous women by promoting the transfer and conservation of cultural knowledge; securing the capacity for the next seven generations to retain and cultivate intrinsic Indigenous world views.
This conference is open to Indigenous women only.

We have had terrible experiences at both but importantly the Holiday Inn Ottawa East is not safe for Indigenous women.
