Amber, Bev, Chantel, Jazmyne, Faith, and Jorgina are survivors. They have co-authored this book with Robert Henry (Métis, Prince Albert), Assistant Professor of Indigenous Studies at the University of Saskatchewan.

“These six women write about the hardships of street and gang life as well their courage, endurance, pride, strength, and love in the face of these difficulties. They show that in settler-colonial societies, trauma and violence work intergenerationally and that healing is not only possible, it is already underway. At its heart, this is a book about hope.”

Joanna Kidman, Professor of Māori Education, Victoria University of Wellington
