Editor’s Note: Woven Cultures Tissées is a group formed in New Brunswick to promote cultural diversity. The group recently released a short anti-racist video titled “The Hijab” around the use of the hijab (head covering) by people in Canada and Indonesia. Their video, published on social media and YouTube in early March 2021, addresses some of the common stereotypes around the use (or not) of the head covering. It is narrated in English and Bahasa Indonesia. It is accompanied by the following text in French and English: “The hijab means different things to different people- even in the same family. In the spirit of International Women’s Day, our co-founders Inda and Wenda [Intiar] are joined by their sister Bonda to share about their experience. Remember- diversity is about respect. Inclusion is about love.”
