The ten biographies of outstanding Native women leaders recount the extraordinary work of women in such diverse fields as the arts, education, the environment, the media, women's rights, and tribal leadership. The inspirational women are both heroines from the past and modern trail blazers who are making history today. Through hard work, dedication, and self-respect, these women rose above their circumstances and made a positive difference for their nations and communities, and serve as a reminder of the extraordinary contributions of Native women in all walks of life.
