cover grandmother spirit project"This resource book is intended to help raise awareness of issues of senior abuse in the lives of senior Aboriginal women, their families and communities. It is meant to help promote the safety and well-being of our seniors and Elders, both women and men, and to honour them as they would be traditionally. Developing a safe community for our Grandmothers and Grandfathers requires the efforts of all community members, from our little ones to the Old ones. We all play a role in ending senior abuse and making our communities safe, for this generation and for generations to come."

All of the materials developed from the Grandmother Spirit project are grounded in the knowledge shared by the Grandmothers and the project Advisory Committee. For more information on the project, go to or contact the Native Women’s Association of Canada at 1-800-461-4043.
