Indigenous women gift new names for Edmonton’s 12 municipal wards

The group of 17 Indigenous women

Called themselves iyiniw iskwewak wihtwâwin (Indigenous Women’s Action/Movement), and was made up of women from First Nations in Treaty 6, 7, and 8 territories, as well as Métis and Inuit peoples.

Over six weeks in August and September, the women gathered weekly either online or in a physically distanced fashion, to share stories, engage in ceremony, tour some of the wards and use the guidance of spirit, Knowledge Keepers, and Elders to recommend 12 deeply meaningful names.
