This is a very feminist anthology of poems, art, photography, interviews and everything else by Native women, for young native women (or femmes, or boys, or however anyone identifies). It's split up into four sections: The Ties That Bind Us, It Could Have Been Me, I am Not Your Princess and Pathfinders.

liked lots of different parts from lots of different sections but I loved Chief Lady Bird’s art, right beside Gwen Benaway’s poetry. Benaway is a trans Anishnaabe poet who writes about bodies and bodies of water and her poetry is easy to read despite how heavy the content can sometimes be. Chief Lady Bird is also Anishnaabe and I just love her use of bold, vivid colours. She works so much and produces so many beautiful pieces, check her art out on Twitter if you like. c:

This just felt like a really authentic, genuine collection and I'm so glad it exists.

I liked this compilation of artwork, stories, photos and quotes from indigenous women from mainly Canada and bit from the US. There are contributions from highschoolers and grandmothers sharing a message of suffering and unity and strength from a sadly underestimated and forgotten community.

Beautiful and moving! So much of the narrative surrounding Native Americans is centered in the past and told by outsiders who tend to objectify, victimize, and/or romanticize. It's lovely (and all too rare) to see a book by and about present day Indigenous women in their full and complex humanity.
