Purpose: The Kapatakan—Portage Trail project addresses spousal abuse of Aboriginal women in urban centres. To reduce—if not eliminate—this abuse, the Centre d’amitié autochtone de Québec (CAAQ) will work with the Maison des femmes de Québec, the Ressourcerie, the Centre femmes aux trois A, and the Centre de développement et de la formation de la main-d’œuvre huron-wendat. Respecting the traditions of Aboriginal women, the CAAQ will develop tools and then provide training to enable Aboriginal women to explore their strengths, develop their inner power, and say no to violence. The CAAQ will also circulate this message through the media.
