I came across Wilma Mankiller & this book when I read Gloria Steinem‘s My Life On the Road. I‘m always grateful to stumble unto these little gems I might never have come across otherwise. This books is a compilation of conversations with native women from various tribes discussing their views on topics from faith to the environment, feminism to their ongoing struggles to preserve their language and culture, and STILL to keep their native lands.

Lcsmcat Sounds interesting. Stacked. 4w

Among women in Canada and the U.S., indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit people are more likely to be murdered or go missing.

This graphic novel follows two teenage girls, best friends, who each have their own struggles. Throughout the story the teens are supported by other indigenous women and their ancestors.

This is a great read to shed light on this epidemic of violence.

“Cherokee people say otsaliheliga to express gratitude. It is a reminder to celebrate our blessings and reflect on our struggles- daily, throughout the year, and across the seasons.”

A lovely reflection on the passing of a year reflected in daily activities. Cherokee words throughout the story are accompanied by a pronunciation guide on the same page.

Cherokee “Check” America Singer is the mother of 5 boys and caring for her dying husband.

Living in the Cherokee Nation in the late 1800‘s, Check‘s mixed heritage and her household of white and African American family and staff, mixed with hunting for treasure, murder, and the struggle for national sovereignty make for a fascinating Western inspired by the author‘s family.

Lafferty‘s strength is commendable. She shares her difficult journey that many indigenous women experience. The writing is simple but her story, and what she is doing now, is powerful.
