This series showcases urban Indigenous women who are fighting on the front lines of their individual and communal struggles for self-determination. Writer Emilee Gilpin, herself an Indigenous woman working and living in unceded Coast Salish territories, follows participants for a day or two or three of their everyday lives. The stories shared highlight some of the invisible aspects of urban Indigeneity, womanhood and struggles for sovereignty, and explore themes of identity, reconciliation, food security, language revitalization and birth work.
