Linda Murphy

Biography

Hello, my name is Linda Murphy. I am a member of Hollow Water First Nation; my mother is from Berens River, Manitoba. My Mom attended Fort Alexander Residential School for 7 years. I wanted to be a part of this video to show that by re-membering who we are as Indigenous women we can heal, we become resilient, we can create better spaces for our children to grow. I wanted to show that we can stop the cycle of abuse by opening up the dark doors of trauma and building our circles with light and love.
