Sisters is the sister piece to Untitled (Resilience). It reflects upon the resiliency of Indigenous women and the protection sisters feel when we are united. I do not have any biological sisters but I consider my closest friends, both Indigenous and non-, my kin as my sisters. Sisters begs you to understand the importance and sacredness of Indigenous women. Please, no more stolen sisters.
