Ishkuteu is a project designed to improve access to services that better meet the needs of Indigenous women experiencing intimate partner violence and related issues, both inside and outside their communities.
This detailed report presents the results of consultations held in both Indigenous and non-Indigenous shelters, as well as a report on the reality of the Indigenous women who live there. The document also includes service development perspectives dating back to the project period and including training and collaboration activities.
This publication will be particularly useful in helping you to understand the issues faced by Indigenous women, and to find ways of improving your intervention service.
To complete your training on the matter and better support the surviving parties, learn about the awareness campaign on violence against Indigenous women during the pandemic. This is a series of 5 videos exploring themes such as the causes and effects of intimate partner violence, how to recognize it, existing help resources and solidarity movements.
Ishkuteu is a project carried out in partnership with Quebec Native Women Inc., the Fédération de ressources d’hébergement pour femmes violentées et en difficulté du Québec, and Service aux collectivités UQAM and DIALOG, a research and knowledge network on Indigenous peoples (INRS – Urbanisation, Culture et Société Research Center).
