About the Book

There is insufficient recognition given to Native American women, many of whom have made enormous contributions to their respective tribal nations and to the broader United States. The 14 women whose stories are recounted in this book are representative of the countless Native American women who have excelled as leaders, including Debra Haaland and her history-making role as Secretary of the Interior. They come from across the centuries and from a range of tribal nations. Discover a wide range of societal areas, including politics, the arts, health care, business, education, wellness, feminism, environmentalism, and social activism. Most of these women have made their mark in more than one area. Each chapter includes personal biographical information as well as information regarding that person’s public life. Some of the individuals have given us much in writing, including memoirs, while others have left behind little or nothing in the way of written materials. Even in the absence of their own words, though, their actions still speak eloquently to us.
