About Agnes Woodward
Agnes Woodward is Nehiyaw Iskwew (Plains Cree) from Kawacatoose First Nation, Saskatchewan, Canada. Agnes is a wife, mother, owner/designer of ReeCreeations and a full time Advocate with the Three Affiliated Tribes Victim Services Program.
She is also a family member of a MMIWG2S as her aunt Eleanor "Laney" Ewenin was murdered in 1982, and her family has been active in the movement since the nineties.
Through her family's involvement in the MMIWG2S movement, she has developed a passion for advocating for those who have been silenced or have yet to find their voice.
With a focus on healing, Agnes has designed a ribbon skirt that has been said to be an iconic symbol in the MMIWG2S movement. She has done several fundraisers for organizations and families of MMIWG2S with the belief that love and support for families must always come from a place of compassion and understanding.
