“I Used to be So Loving and Generous”: Indigenous Male Violence Towards Indigenous Women
Robert Innes, University of Saskatchewan

Within the Indigenous community discussing Indigenous male violence towards Indigenous women is difficult. Nonetheless, some Indigenous men have begun to acknowledge the level of violence Indigenous men have perpetrated against Indigenous women. This presentation explores the ways in which some are talking about the violence they or other Indigenous men have committed against Indigenous women that challenges their notions of Indigenous masculinity as a means of taking on violence within our communities in hopes of building healthier families and futures.
