In this unique collection, twenty indigenous female leaders-educators, healers, attorneys, artists, elders, and activists-come together to discuss issues facing modern Native communities. Over a period of several years, Wilma Mankiller (1945-2010), first female principal chief of the Cherokee Nation, engaged Native women in conversation about spirituality, traditions and culture, tribal governance, female role models, love, and community. Their common life experiences, patterns of thought, and shared values gave them the freedom to be frank and open and a place of community from which to explore powerful influences on Native life.
