Yellow Medicine Review: Women’s Wisdom, Women’s Strength

“Remember that I am just a woman who is living a very abundant life. Every step I take forward is on a path paved by strong Indian women before me.” 
—Wilma Mankiller 
 
From our grandmothers and aunties and sisters to the women who write stories, lead states, and sit as poet laureate for the United States, we turn to Native women for their strength, wisdom, and leadership. 
 
“Oh woman 
Remember who you are 
Woman 
It is the whole earth.” 
“The Blanket Around Her” 
—Joy Harjo 

I’m deeply honored to have my work included. Growing Old in a Beautiful Way, page 59 is an excerpt from my memoir, We Who Walk the Seven Ways, forthcoming from University of Nebraska Press, Spring 2023.
