Inspirational Aboriginal Women

Inspirational Aboriginal Women was photography exhibit at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts in 2017 by Montreal photographer, Monique Dykstra.

The exhibition featured nine aboriginal women who endured terrible hardships in their personal lives before arriving, at rock bottom, at the Native Women’s Shelter in Montreal.

With help from this remarkable shelter, and with a lot of hard work and determination, these nine women rebuilt their lives.

The MMFA exhibition consisted of huge, larger-than-life photographs, nearly 6 feet high, to honour these remarkable women and to celebrate the strong, capable women they are today.
