As mentioned before on this blog, about sixty percent of aboriginal kids drop out of high school which is way too high. Now I see that the number of young aboriginal women going to prison has shot up by forty percent in the last decade.

Is this where they’re going to get their education? Hope not!

Aboriginal women have always played a vital role in the life of their communities and now is the time when opportunities of a lifetime are becoming available that will enable them to lead their communities into a brighter future.  Come on ladies, it’s your turn to shine, not to rot in some black hole. With the new Aboriginal Health Authority being established in British Columbia, the options for young aboriginal women to attain stimulating, respected, and well paying health careers is staggering. The bus is leaving pretty mama. Don’t get left behind.
