Meet Doris Peltier, an advocate for Indigenous women living with HIV

Doris Peltier has dedicated her life's work to advocating for the wellbeing of Indigenous women living with HIV/AIDS. The 63-year-old Anishinaabe mother, grandmother and great-grandmother started working in the field in 2010 after she was diagnosed with HIV. "At the time of my diagnosis and shortly afterwards, I found out that was not something that was unique to me. Many Indigenous women were being diagnosed late like myself," she said.
