While awaiting the arrival of her daughter, Melissa Mollen Dupuis – the co-founder of Idle No More Quebec – weaves together a blanket for her unborn daughter that tells the creation story of their people. What begins as a creation story becomes a strong and stirring message of promise, conviction and hope to the new life growing inside her. 

 

Melissa Mollen Dupuis is an Innu Nation member from the community of Ekuanitshit on the North-Shore region of Quebec. She has over 15 years of experience in the cultural activities sector with First Nations organizations, including the First Nations Garden and more recently Native Montreal.
