Sister Nations is a joy to read.

For me, this anthology of poems, short stories and other creative writing pieces brings me the closest to really hearing the stories of Native American women across the land. The writer's words and stories captivated me the entire way--all the distance.

Of the Native American texts offered from Minnesota Historical Society Press, Sister Nations is the most daring and profound.

A collection of reflections, poems, and short stories exploring Native womens' lives and place within their community. There is a huge diversity of writers here, and it shows. Each story is absolutely unique. Some are sad, some silly, some funny, others thoughtful and some all of those things combined.

One of my favorite anthologies, because it is easily relatable and goes straight to the heart of things. Good diversity, and yet clear consistency. Hard-pressed to choose favorites, but the poetry is awesome in general.

A beautiful collection of poetry and prose by female Native American voices. It is an interesting look at gender equality from the perspective of the Native experience.
