Despite 520 years of colonialism, capitalism and imperialism we are still here. We have survived because we have resisted through our struggle with deep wells of love for our people. I give thanks to the ongoing resistance and today I particularly thank all the women whose names may never be elevated or recorded in books but who have made so much possible!
