Join editors Mary Ann Jacobs, Cherry Maynor Beasley, and Ulrike Wiethaus for a virtual conversation on their recently released book “Upon Her Shoulders: Southeastern Native Women Share Their Stories of Justice, Spirit, and Community.”
The book documents the autobiographical stories and poems of Southeastern American Indian women whose hard work and daily fight to keep their communities well and safe is all too often disregarded by mainstream publications and the general public. At the end of each section, the editors provide questions for reflection. Aimed at general readers and especially American Indian women themselves, this book celebrates the voices of those in native communities in the US Southeast, a region rarely covered in other publications. The editors, with deep roots in the scholarship and culture of Indian women, have collected original stories, narratives, and poems.
