of the Yellow Medicine Review, we ask you to celebrate with us.
We want to hear stories, poems, songs, dreams,
letters, and imaginings of Native Women. We hope to break stereotypes, to highlight the mission of #MMIWG, and to talk about
the lack of historical reproductive rights of Native women. Write a letter to a Native woman you admire. Tell us what it is
like to be a Native woman, to be a two-spirit woman; and men, tell us how the women in your life influenced you, molded you,
Write about or to our Mother Earth, write a manifesto for your daughters, write about the great grandmother
you never met.
remember who you are
