"Whether looking back to a troubled past or welcoming a hopeful future, the powerful voices of Indigenous women across North America resound in this book. In the same style as the best-selling Dreaming in Indian, #Not Your Princess presents an eclectic collection of poems, essays, interviews, and art that combine to express the experience of being a Native woman. Stories of abuse, humiliation, and stereotyping are countered by the voices of passionate women making themselves heard and demanding change. Sometimes angry, often reflective, but always strong, the women in this book will give teen readers insight into the lives of women who, for so long, have been virtually invisible."--

This is an excellent collection of poetry, prose, and visual art by Indigenous North American women, commenting on the many aspects of that identity and how misperceptions of it impact their interactions with others. The styles and topics vary widely, creating a mosaic that wonderfully captures the complexity of experiences, distinct and unified at the same time. The design work is outstanding, and the entire package inspirational.
