#NotYourPrincess: Voices of Native American Women

Edited by Lisa Charleyboy and Marybeth Leatherdale 

Published in 2017 by Annick Press

In her Foreword to #NotYourPrincess, editor Lisa Charleyboy describes this anthology as a “space to not only write a love letter to all young Indigenous women trying to find their way, but also to dispel those stereotypes so we can collectively move forward to a brighter future for all.” 

#NotYourPrincess is divided into four sections: The Ties that Bind Us, It Could Have Been Me, I Am Not Your Princess, and Pathfinders, each featuring a wide range of texts celebrating the stories, perspectives, and experiences of Indigenous women. Poems, artwork, photographs, quotes, essays, and interviews combine to create a powerful and thought-provoking collection of female Indigenous voices.
