Indigenous Women Outdoors

Non-Profit Partner

Our mission is to hold space for Indigenous women to come together and feel safe on the land. We want Indigenous women* to be leaders in the outdoor industry and to be confident in sharing their knowledge and connection of the land with the greater public. Through guidance and mentorship, participants can choose to start getting their own training and certifications to feel safe out on the land, as well as lead other groups and women to get outside.

Why We Work Together

Indigenous Women Outdoors started as Tá7elnexwtway, a hiking project to get more Squamish Nation women out on the land. Outdoor Research is proud to support the empowerment that IWO provides to its participants, and to further the opportunities created for Indigenous women in their community to be leaders and role-models in the outdoor industry.
