Superheroes exist all around us, disguised as mothers, daughters and friends.

Dangerous Dames is a Storytelling event featuring stories told by empowered women who are working to advocate for themselves and the environment. These women have issued a “call to action”. They are real-life superheroes, speaking-out to break barriers, beat the odds and blaze new trails to make a positive impact in other people’s lives.

Sherry Lawson: Opening remarks by Sherry Lawson. Sherry is a member of Mnjikaning First Nation, mother, grandmother, volunteer, storyteller, author and former cultural services director for Chippewas of Rama First Nation.

Becky Big Canoe: Becky Big Canoe is a Water Walker and water advocate, a mother of two and grandmother of two, a member of the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nation, and a woman who has journeyed on foot around Lake Simcoe and Lake Couchiching carrying a copper kettle full of water to raise money in support of healthy lakes.

Kim Desmoulin: Kim Desmoulin coordinates the Ambe Tigadaw Garden Collective project at the Orillia Native Women’s Group.
