about

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.  

Lisa Charleyboy (Tsilhqot'in) is Editor-In-Chief of Urban Native Magazine, which focuses on pop culture with an Indigenous twist. She is also the host of CBC Radio's New Fire. She lives in Vancouver. Mary Beth Leatherdale writes, edits and consults on books, magazines, and digital resources for children and youth.
