"Women have power. Men have to dream to get power from the spirits and they think of everything they can hoping that the spirits will notice them and give them some power. But we have power. Children. Can any warrior make a child, no matter how brave and wonderful he is?"
—Maria Chona, Papago

What was the role of women in the world of nomadic American Indians in the 19th century? The Spirit of Indian Women provides a unique glimpse into a world that is almost inaccessible in our time. The Spirit of Indian Women is another addition to the Sacred Worlds series following the recent, World Wisdom best-selling quotebook Indian Spirit in its approach, but is much more focused on women in Native American civilization. Through the combined power of photos, art, and the wisdom of traditional voices, modern readers can come to feel something of the timeless spirit of Indian women.

The book features:

Quotes from traditional Indian chiefs
Re-telling of legends of different tribes
Observations of Indian writers who were brought up in the ancient way
The actual words of many Native American women on their roles and the reality of being a woman in Indian societies
Powerful rare photos, many published here for the first time, that convey the spirit of these extraordinary women
Rich illustrations that make every page a work of art
