Cheryl Bear Concert for She Matters 4

Canadian Baptist Ministries (CBM) and Altadore Baptist Church are pleased to host a free concert featuring Cheryl Bear, as part of the CBM She Matters 4 Canada Learning Tour. She Matters 4 Canada opens difficult dialogue on issues facing Indigenous women today, such as discrimination, marginalization, and the often taboo subject of gender-based violence, that only increases with silence and denial. In Canada, Aboriginal women are killed at six times the rate of non-aboriginal women. Many have simply gone missing. CBM has invited singer/songwriter and Indigenous leader Cheryl Bear from the Nadleh Whut’en community in Northern British Columbia to be their She Matters spokesperson for 2017-18. Cheryl is an award-winning performer and educator who shares stories of Indigenous life – the joy, sorrow, faith and journey. There is no charge to attend but donations to She Matters 4 will be gratefully accepted.
