Hotıì ts'eeda was pleased to support North Slave Metis Shelley Wiart's master's degree research project: Digital Storytelling as an Indigenous Women’s Health Advocacy Tool: Empowering Indigenous Women to Frame Their Health Stories.

Hotıì ts'eeda subsidized a summer research assistant for the project and sponsored a presentation of Wiart's work. Five digital stories were premiered at Northern United Place in Yellowknife on August 15, 2019. The presentation entitled Legacy: Indigenous Women's Health Stories showcased stories from Indigenous women from Onion Lake Cree Nation, on the border of Alberta and Saskatchewan and from Yellowknife, NWT.
