‘I am Eagle’: Matricia Bauer offers powerful TED Talk – Yahoo

May 25, 2023

While Matricia Bauer has always held a crowd’s attention during her many events as part of Warrior Women, being the focus of a television show and a TED Talk are entirely new experiences.

These are important moments for her, and she hopes they are for everyone else as well.

“I have to be able to do my part in the ability that I have as an Indigenous woman to tell my story so that other people can then feel safe to share their story,” she said.

“Really, my TED Talk isn’t meant for the masses. It’s really meant for those other Indigenous women that are coming of age and they see another woman wearing an eagle feather, wearing fringe, wearing a ribbon skirt, being brave and telling their story even though it’s hard. If that helps them be brave and share their story, then we have a lot of people who are sharing their truth and then we can achieve, eventually, reconciliation when other people understand the truth.”
