Red Braid member Teresa Dettling responds to criticisms that deny and erase women’s leadership in Red Braid. She says, "I refuse to stand by while my sisters are being slandered, and their work erased and ignored. To the people who want to label us a 'cult,' we are not going to be quiet and we are not going to stop fighting with our sisters, supporting our sisters, and organizing with our Indigenous and working class sisters."

Red Braid member Ma Maa Tea (Nuu Chah Nulth and Irish) responds to critiques of Red Braid’s Indigenous leadership.
