Their contributions explore the critical issues facing Native women as they rebuild and revive their communities. Through topics such as the role of tradition, reclaiming identities and protecting Native children and the environment, they identify the restraints that shape their actions and the inspirations that feed their visions.The contributors address issues of youth, health and sexual identity; women's aging, sexuality and health; caring for children and adults living with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome; First Nations education and schooling; community-based activism on issues of prostitution and street workers; and reclaiming cultural identity through art and music.

Strong Woman Stories: Native Vision and Community Survival

This collection of seventeen essays is written by several accomplished Aboriginal women in Canada. The entries, covering years of experience, discuss issues and concerns related to the experience of Aboriginal women from a number of perspectives. The anthology is divided into three sections. “Coming Home” delves into the subject of reclaiming one’s identity and heritage. “Asking Questions” deals with the struggles and challenges encountered when change is attempted. “Rebuilding” addresses health, violence, education and gender roles with the aspirations of looking forward to a better future.

Additional features include a short biography on the contributors and a bibliography of selected resources.
