Details

Native women have filled their communities with strength and leadership, both historically and as modern-day warriors. The 12 Native American and First Nations women featured in this book overcame unimaginable hardships—racial and gender discrimination, abuse and extreme poverty—only to rise to great heights in the fields of politics, science, education and community activism. Such determination and courage reflect the essence of the traditional Cheyenne saying, “A nation is not conquered until the hearts of its women are on the ground.” The impressive accomplishments of these 12 dynamic women provide inspiration for all.
