In her stunning debut Unbroken, Angela Sterritt connects her personal story of growing up on the streets as a Gitxsan teenager with the ongoing plight of countless missing and murdered Indigenous girls and women here in Canada. This is a story of advocacy, of survival, of justice and above all else, the strength and resilience of Indigenous women.
